Victorian Sweden, 1870: In the wake of the great famine Lovisa Lind is ready to follow millions of Swedes and emigrate to America in search of a better life. But first she has promised to spend one final Christmas in Sweden with her friend and employer Madame Brask, the formidable candy shop owner, and help prepare the sweets for Baron von Drever's spectacular winter ball at Mollberga Manor. Reluctant to open her heart to the season, Lovisa is horrified to discover that stern widower von Drever makes her frozen heart thaw. But a relationship would be unthinkable due to the conventions of the day, not to mention that the Baron is surrounded by dark rumors; was he involved in the death of the Baroness? As the midwinter cold paralyzes the countryside, Lovisa is pulled into a perfect storm of burning desire, beautiful gowns and nightly hauntings. But who are the ghostly shadows lurking in the old mansion, and in Lovisa's own mind? How did the Baroness die? And will Lovisa leave Sweden forever?
