Olivia Dell has awoken to a new world.
She found her friend, John Williams, murdered in a brutal and unexplained attack. A short time after this she herself was attacked by a man who appeared to be her husband, but he is thought missing and dead in the Crimea war.
If this was not strange enough,
during the attack on Olivia, she was saved by a strange figure that appeared to be a supernatural apparition and having passed out from what should have been a fatal knife wound; she awoke the next day with just a minor injury, but to a great mystery.
Who killed John Williams?
Did her husband try to murder her, and could it be possible she was saved by something other than a human being?
