To set the stage, Alastor is away fighting in the American Civil War and writes home to his wife Becca. Through his words, the strain of the war is evident and you can see the early signs of depression and PTSD that changed his and Becca's fate for two lifetimes.

My Darling Becca,
Fear not, my love, I am alive and well. We are still near Memphis and it is believed that we will spend the winter here. Please, rest assured, the weather is much warmer here than that of home and I am as comfortable as a soldier can be.
I only wish that I was home with you, by the fire, and that this war was over. To say that I think of you all day and all night would not begin to express my devotion to you. I love you, my darling. I have missed you terribly these past weeks.
As by now you are aware, we have lost men from this regiment, some from Corydon that I had known my entire life. I was part of the group that escorted the coffins to the railway and I can honestly say that it a duty I never wish to perform again. Please offer my condolences to their families and tell them that their fallen husbands and sons fought bravely to the very end.
I have enclosed more money as winter is soon at hand and you will be needing coal and other supplies. Do not worry; I have boots and a warm coat. Please buy as much as you think you will need for the winter and have it locked away in the shed. I do not mean to frighten you, but the rebels could become desperate as the days become colder.
I wish that I was there to see to your comforts, but alas I am not. Know that if I were, you would not want for anything or have any need to fear the war. I love you my darling and am thinking of you always.
Your faithful husband,
"I love you my darling and am thinking of you always"...I just love the way Alastor speaks! So, does that put you in the mood for Possessed? It does me!
Every story has two sides...
Alastor truly believed that his life was over the night his wife Becca shot and killed him over a century ago, but now he has returned as a spirit to haunt the reincarnation of his traitorous, murdering wife. Why now? Why Becca after all this time?
When Becca moves into her ancestral home in Corydon, Indiana, her life takes a puzzling and thrilling turn when she meets the ghost haunting the halls. As the seductive spirit lures her closer and closer, she learns about her own past and starts to understand that some mistakes are meant to last.
To Becca, Alastor is a seductive spirit that seems to see straight into her soul. To Alastor, Becca is what he has waited a century for--A second chance. But a second chance at what? Love...Or revenge?
How far will each of them go to rectify the wrongs of the past?
