He reflects on the rash decision that killed his wife, Elizabeth, and vows not to have the same happen to his daughter.Suddenly, his housekeeper, Julia, shrieks that Elizabeths ghost has returned for her revenge. He says it was only an illusion caused by the storm. A glass moved by unseen hands eradicates any trace of doubt.Flashback: Elizabeth, married to Duncan, goes swimming in the cove below the chateau, and has an affair with Enrique, who watched unseen as she changed clothes.

They use the myriad guest rooms within the chateau, finally moving their dalliances to an outbuildings loft.Elizabeth in a fit of rage, leaves the chateau in a blinding snowstorm and is killed by the ice covered mountain road.

Four years after the incident, Elizabeths ghost visits and tells Duncan that she knows that while he was not directly responsible for her death, he has incurred the wrath of the Supreme Being for his inability to convince her not to go. Duncan is given a chance to redeem himself by saving Chloe from the same fate, but at a price.Chloe meets a boater, Leonardo, and falls heavily.

Chloe drives the boat, and Leonardo is there to lend a hand. They stop at inlets and make love, and spend the night at a bed and breakfast at an out of the way village.

Just before Thanksgiving, Leonardo proposes at the Inn. Chloe rushes up the mountain to tell Duncan. An early winter storm buries the chateau, but Chloe is determined to get back to her fiancée.
