In the beginning a small girl runs into a wood and two years later walks out of it and into the nearest house. Gracie, the childless spinster who finds her curled up on her armchair, takes her on as her own, seeing her as a feral gift of fate. Known as Joy in the Cotswold village which adopts her, there is endless speculation about her wild past and comical ways.
