Cami Martin is offered a dream job as a nanny to young Quentin Blanchette. Her employer owns an infamous plantation home called Verity. Verity is famous for the cruelties of its antebellum past and, some say, for the strangeness of its current inhabitants, be they alive or dead. The old antebellum home is full of secrets, some of them deadly. Still there is the promise of love at Verity, love for her pupil and a powerful attraction to Christopher Blanchette who has secrets of his own.
