Jenny Hargreaves leaves her teaching post and travels to the remote coast of Wales, to work as a paid companion to Verity Morgan, entering a world of fear and suspicion. Why is it that no villager of Pentir will approach Crearty House after dusk? And who is it who waits on the cliffs below the pine forest? Six people, bound together in a strange code of silence, hold the answers, but which one knows the all important link between the heirloom ring and the bloodstained axe? When Jenny sets out to discover the truth she precipitates the final act of an ancient tragedy.
