Anne, a young woman who lives with her stern uncle, is considered odd by the gossips of her village because she spends much of her time in the woods, where she has imaginary conversations with her deceased mother, and hears faeries and spirits talking to her.

Safe within the walls of the haunted house, Jimmy and Anne begin a romance. ... +
