Gabriel Stone is desperate to escape the ghosts that haunt him in Massachusetts after his wife's death, so he moves to Maine, taking a position as a minister in the remote village of Pale Harbor.

Summary
In 1846, Gideon Stone moves to Pale Harbor, Maine, where there is a vacancy for a new minister, in his efforts to escape the ghosts that haunt him in Massachusetts after his wife's death. But strange things have been happening, and the townspeople suspect Sophronia Carver, a widow and recluse who lives with a spinster maid in Castle Carver. When Gideon meets Sophronia he knows this charming, beautiful woman can't be guilty. Together they realize that the mysterious events have one thing in common: they all contain elements from popular stories of Mr. Edgar Allan Poe. When events escalate to murder, Gideon and Sophronia attempt to find the killer.
