When Mark East arrives at the elegant estate in Crestwood, his employer, Mr. Stoneman, insists he is engaging East only as a private secretary. But why is Mr. Stoneman so frightened? Why does their melancholy hostess, Laura Morey, keep to her room? What secret is little Anne Morey hiding behind her tight-lipped, solemn face? Then, when a woman dies in a mysterious fire and a housemaid suddenly disappears, East discovers that some passions cannot be buried under a peaceful blanket of snow.
