England, 1970. When their London home goes up in flames. Mrs. Harrington and her the two children relocate to Foxcote Manor to recuperate. When a baby girl is abandoned just beyond their garden gate, this tiniest of secrets brings a much-needed peace, until a visitor detonates the family's happiness. All too soon a body lies dead in the woods. Forty years later, London-based Sylvie is an expert at looking the other way. She buried her own origin story decades ago, never imagining her teenage daughter would have a shocking reason to dig the past up - and to ask Sylvie to finally face the secrets that lead her back to Foxcote Manor.
