From the publisher: "Trapped in the past, summoned there against his will by Leticia and Desmond Collins, Barnabas Collins finds himself quickly drawn into the drama of the lives of everyone at Collinwood in the year 1870. To his surprise, he discovers that Edith Collins is alive and well -- and that her desire for power has led her to make a pact with one of Satan’s most loyal followers, a pact that threatens everyone on the estate, leading them to their preordained destiny. And while in this past era, Barnabas discovers that there may well be a link with the tragedies unfolding around him and the unleashing of evil by Victoria Winters in his own time. Can he find the answer in time or must the Collins family of the past die in order to save the family in 1971?"
