When old-fashioned teacher Abigail Chapel learns that her sister, Miranda has disappeared while hunting ghosts on mysterious Wolf Island , she is determined to learn what happened to her. After Devlin Morgan, the reclusive owner of Morgan's Keep, coolly turns away her inquiries, Abigail leaves England and travels to Maine to continue her search in person. Abigail's first obstacle is Devlin Morgan, the "sovereign" of Wolf Island . The people in the village respect him, Abigail finds him alluring, but she fears he is involved in her sister's disappearance. Can Abigail untangle the mystery of Devlin's past and the "Chiming Ghost"? Is the ghost real or an illusion created by the people in the village in a desperate attempt to save the failing tourist trade? Is Devlin Morgan lover or enemy? Can Abigail trust her own feelings enough to allow Devlin into her heart?
