Still grieving the death of her prematurely delivered infant, Lila finds a welcome distraction in renovating a country house she"s recently inherited.

But utopia-building can be fraught with unexpected peril, and when the fate of the group is left eerily unclear, Lila turns her attention to untangling a web of secrets to uncover the shocking truth of what happened that fateful year, in order to come to terms with her own loss and build a new future for herself.
