Bess Throckmorton, a Devon farmer's daughter, encounters an ancient bearded relative... and realizes just how ancient he is when he reveals that he is the ghost of Sir Walter Raleigh! Sir Walter is determined to escape the Tower of London, his prison for nearly four hundred years, to return to the Devon farm of his youth - the only place he was ever truly happy. He wants to rediscover his family, too, and persuades Bess to take him home with her. On the family farm, Sir Walter revisits the joys of his childhood; he also learns that the farm is now endangered by the covetous schemes of the horrible Borrowbill brothers - and devises a scheme of his own to restore the family fortunes while avenging his cruel fate. Unfortunately, a mischievous spirit's idea of helping out isn't quite what Bess had in mind!
