When science fails, forgiveness may be the only answer.
In 1971, Psychotherapist David Weis thought he had reached therapeutic completion with his ghostly, lovely patient, Almira...until the true reason for her spiritual entrapment is revealed. The questions raised are more profound than anything psychology can explain and cause a rift between him and the woman he loves. David struggles to find a way forward, not wanting to surrender his disbelief.
Meanwhile, in 1841, life at the Albany Female Academy is complicated. Desperate and young, Almira is thrown into a web of social tensions, animal desire, and secrets built upon secrets. It’s a race against time for her and her forbidden lover, Daniel, to find happiness in the face of society’s obstacles.
