A love story played out over the ages, this is a compelling novel about five couples whose romances span more than twelve centuries. In the year 1770, a young man named Theo is taken into the Abbeyfields monastery, where he finds his love, Princess Matilda. In 1540, a young woman named Matilda Whitfield meets Brother Theodore, a monk who has nearly lost his faith. In 1880, Theo and Matilda are the proprietors of a sprawling mansion, Abbeyfields Hall. A hundred years later, Abbeyfields has become a psychiatric hospital, where Theo and Matilda are patients. Today, a new Theo and Matilda have come home in search of a new page of history on which to write their story.
