Pru has cancer, she is dying. Her one hope is finding the legendary holy grail to be cured. A dig on her father's property may turn up the holy relic. The church sends a priest to monitor the dig, along with a companion, called Chapel. Although Chapel works for the church, he is a vampire, turned by drinking from the blood grail, which he mistook for the holy grail on a quest centuries ago. Chapel seeks the holy grail for himself, and longs for salvation. He and Pru fall in love, and she learns what he is. She also knows that he could save her life by turning her. He refuses to make her a monster like himself, even though it means her death. You can't help but love both of these people, and feel for them. One part was so touching, I was actually sobbing. Excellent story. Can there be a happy ending? You bet!
