When a young woman, Cynthia Wright Snowden, is overcome by the struggles and upheavals in her life she is distracted enough to be careless. She steps off a curb in front of a bus. Or was she pushed? As she lays in a coma in her hospital bed, she finds her spirit alone with a handsome stranger, Robbie McDougal, talking to him without actual words.
He tells her he is a Highlander from the 16th century, and was put into what he calls the land of shadows and dreams by a witch. He has to find love to break the spell. She tells him she was hit by a bus and shows him some of the modern world.
He can see through her eyes, and she through his. They explore her dreams, which are based on childhood fairy tales: Cinderella, because of her evil stepmother and two stepsisters; and Snow White with seven younger brothers.
He tells her about other women he's met in the land of shadows and how they all died. He's hoping that this time he will find a love that does not die.
