This story is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's haunting poem, A Dream Within A Dream. My hero, William Croft, appeared as a character in an earlier story of mine called Pearls of Fire.

William Croft, Baron Whitpool, has recurring dreams of a young woman with long, black hair and smoke-gray eyes running amid the ruins of Tintagel Castle on the Cornwall coast. He calls her Aislin in his dreams, but who is she?

If she exists, how is she connected to the missing years of his life?
