Cornwall, England, on the eve of war. The wealthy Cossentines, a family of silversmiths, are poisoned at dinner: only the youngest son and daughter survive. Maurice inherits everything. Celeste, with a history of psychosis, flees, taking with her a unique silver ring. In the chaos of war, Celeste assumes a new identity and trains as a nurse but lives in fear of being recognised. When a wounded soldier captures her heart on the bloody battlefields of France, she yearns to confess. But dare she trust even Danny with her secret?

Present Day. 

After the silver ring comes up for auction in New York, sparking a hunt for the long-lost heir to the Cossentine estate, professional violinist Stella begins to decipher her late grandmother's coded journals. Shocked to discover her true identity, she travels to Cornwall to visit a spooky Cornish museum dedicated to the grisly murders, in the hope of proving her bloodline. But not everyone is happy to see the lost heir and Stella soon suspects someone is watching her... Is her own life in danger?
