Sadie is upset when her mum uproots them from the city to move to the remote small town of Boort. But before long she has discovered a powerful place and crows that speak to her, and she is drawn to two boys, Lachie and Walter. Then Sadie is thrown back in time to witness a dreadful crime in which her family is involved. Sadie, Walter and Lachie must find a way to atone for past wrongs, or be doomed to repeat them.
