   schema:description "In her obsession with Adam she is seen as a traitor by her people following Adam to Edinburgh when he leaves home to study medicine. As the years pass Adam makes new friends and finds new love. When Brid finally tracks him down he is consumed by a violent rage that knows no bounds. For fifty years, from Scotland to England and then to Wales, Brid will haunt Adam like an evil shadow. It is finally Adam's grand daughter, Beth, who helps him discover the secret that will free them from the terror of Brid's curse."@en ;
