Corrine Jameson wakes up in a strange room, in a strange bed, and too ill to sit up when she learns that her mother is dead. She's now a ward of her Uncle William McPhee. Uncle William is her mother's brother and they never got along so Corrine knows little about him. Corrine's father never came home from the war and is presumed dead. Uncle William is cold, distant, and sets rules for Corrine with no reason for his demands -- and lets it be known that he's selling the Corrine's family farm. But, in 1865 in Virginia, with no money and her parents dead, Corrine has few options -- or does she?

From official release/information:

From back of book: Ever since her parents died, Corrine's dreams have been filled with faeries warning her of impending peril. When she's sent to live at Falston Manor, she thinks she's escaped the danger stalking her. Instead the dreams grow stronger, just as girls begin disappearing from school.

Then Corrine discovers letters of forbidden love from a medieval monk who writes of his entanglement with a race of vampiric Fey--the same Fey who haunt Corrine's dreams. Who are these creatures and what do they want? Corrine knows only one thing form sure: another girl will disappear soon, and that girl just might be her.
