When Naida’s mother dies she is forced to escape from London before her stepfaher Andreas arranges a marriage for her. She arrives at Old Moorstone Farm in Cornwall and stays with the Tregartha family. Concealing her own mysterious secrets, the quiet backwater she hoped would be her refuge, holds sinister tensions.
Ivor Tregartha informs Naida that his wife is an invalid. Soon Naida realises the woman is far more disturbed than she was led to believe. She appears terrified of her daughter Lowenna.
Naida meets a handsome fisherman who tells her many mystical stories of Cornwall, of the white witch Lilith and the Druid festival of Midsummer Eve. She finds she is falling in love.
Eventually her past catches up with her. Her stepbrother Petros traces her and attemps to abduct her. A marriage has been arranged for her with a wealthy friend of her stepfather. This compromises her new found friendships and sets in motion a series of consequences, kidnapping, danger, intrigue and ill fated love.
Starla-sky, at a crossroads in her life, takes up the invitation to visit a long lost Aunt in Marbella. There she meets the handsome but arrogant Jose Velazquez and his troupe of gypsy flamenco dancers. After just breaking free from a disastrous relationship with Matt, she decides no one but herself can give her happiness. The last thing she wants is to fall in love.
She finds herself caught in a treacherous plot to ruin her Aunt and Uncle. Much to her annoyance Jose is hired to protect her. He takes her to the gypsy caves at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. There begins her journey to self discovery.
She cannot deny the powerful attraction he invokes in her. She realises they are cultures apart. He is stuck in the old beliefs and customs. She is headstrong and liberated. Her wilful behaviour causes antagonism and takes her to the depths of despair.
Seeking help she learns the philosophy of universal law from the wise woman.
