Following the loss of her mother, 8-year-old Evie is sent to a new life in rural Wales, a dripping place, where flowers appear mysteriously on doorsteps and people look at her twice. With a sense of being lied to, she sets out to discover her family's dark secret, unaware that there is more darkness to come.
