Until he locates a woman who will willingly become his wife and break the curse, the knight is doomed to wander the earth. The ghost of Sir James encounters a young lady who he thinks might be the one to break the curse centuries later. She is a kind and compassionate woman, but she is also engaged to be married to a man named John. Sir James decides to test her loyalty and devotion by appearing to her as a ghost and asking her to marry him.

About Author

H. De Vere Stacpoole

Irish author H. de Vere Stacpoole lived from 9 April 1863 to 12 April 1951. The Blue Lagoon, a romance book published in 1908, is his best-known work and has been made into a number of motion pictures. He was the final son of the Reverend William Church Stacpoole, a theologian and the headmaster of Kingstown School, and Charlotte Augusta. He was born on April 9, 1863, in Kingstown, now known as Dun Laoghaire, in Taney, close to Dublin. He had three older sisters, the oldest of them, Florence Stacpoole, who was a health and medicine author. Henry credited his mother, who was of Irish descent but had grown up in the wildest and most forested areas of Canada up to the age of twelve before deciding to become a widow and move back to Ireland, with having a significant influence on his love of nature, which had defined his entire life. When Reverend William passed away too soon in 1870, the mother was left to raise her four kids by herself. The family relocated for an extended period to Nice in the south of France in the winter of 1871 due to lung issues that were incorrectly diagnosed.
