Now frail and muddled, Lillian is the sole guardian of Cloudesley, and of its dark secrets. Only when Maggie, her devoted granddaughter, returns to nurse her - and her own heartbreak - do the walls of the past begin to crumble, threatening to bring the tragic consequences of that summer to light...
