How far would you go to protect your family?

Hawke's Bay, New Zealand
While Rachel Butler likes her life in a pretty Dublin coastal village, her heart lies in Hawke's Bay, where she grew up. Visiting for the first time since tragedy tore her family apart, she and her stepchildren fall for its beauty and outdoor lifestyle.

Malahide, Ireland
As Rachel picks up the threads of her life as a single parent, she can't shake off the memories of her loving family in New Zealand - and her dream house, the villa on the bay. But it's time to move forwards with their life in Ireland, close to the children's grandparents, amid the familiar surroundings they all know well.

Until the children's grandmother, still grieving, starts to interfere, questioning Rachel's position as stepmother.

Until Rachel's attempts to strengthen the family she loves so dearly backfires, pitting everyone against each other.

And until her late husband's parents mend the rift that has existed as long as she's been married - bringing with them an explosive secret . . .
