Tegan has been brought up in a psychologically abusive cult, but is cast out. Taught to fear and abhor the outside world, she struggles as shadows from her past haunt her in flashbacks, panic attacks and a fear of the dark.
However, she also finds a world full of colour, love and happiness she has never known. She is vulnerable and naïve but also has courage and the will to survive. She travels to Wales, to previously unknown relations in the wild Cambrian Mountains. The wild beauty of the hills, the people she meets and the secrets slowly revealed by the cottage might just provide a place where Tegan can start to heal.
