Erica Lawrence is possessed by the past. One cold, blustery night nineteen years ago in Olinda, Victoria, young Erica almost died at the hands of her mother. She and her father started a new life in a distant city, far from the pity and interest of the gossip-hungry locals, but their relationship never recovered from that moment their family fractured. Now, desperate to understand what kind of woman her mother was and what would motivate her to harm her only child, Erica returns as the resident veterinarian of her picturesque hometown and begins asking questions. But just as she is rekindling old friendships and unearthing family secrets, people begin to disappear. And the only thing more frightening than how these people disappear, is how they reappear.
