"It is 1950, and after a disastrous honeymoon night, Ariah Erskine's young husband throws himself into the oblivion of Niagra Falls. "The Widow Bride of the Falls," as Ariah comes to be known, begins a relentless, seven-day vigil in the mist, waiting for his body to be found. At her side throughout, confirmed bachelor Dirk Burnaby is unexpectedly drawn to this plain, strange woman, falling in love with her though they barely exchange a word. What follows is a passionate love affair, marriage, children a seemingly perfect existence. But the tragedy that brought them together shadows their lives, damaging their idyll with distrust, greed, and even murder."
