"I am certain that most of the devout Christians present might know what to expect if he or she attempts to cross the river after dark...”
The newly married Dr Francis and Elizabeth Woods arrive in Ingerley in 1880 to make their new home together. For Elizabeth it’s a return to the place where her father has been the resident doctor for several years and from whom her husband will be taking over. It all promises a cosy, comfortable future for the young couple. However, despite the idyllic setting, all is not as it should be in Ingerley. From the local inn, to the local manor house, secrets abide. People are not what they appear to be. Even in the River Ribble, the legendary water spirit Peg O’Nell is unsettled. Just what could set things right?
