Six-year-old Tildy McVee has always sensed things that others do not.
Her mysterious talent is both a burden and a blessing, sometimes helping her to understand those around her, whilst also filling her brain with confusion and fear.
When her family leave the city in favour of the green and idyllic Adelaide Hills, she is initially optimistic that the move will be a positive change for them all – instead, it raises questions that no one seems able to answer.
Who is the sad man that haunts her dreams?
Why is her Mother filled with so much worry and pain?
Why, during a housewarming party that was supposed to fill the house with merriment and joy, does Tildy sense nothing but heightened emotion and impending disaster?
With her family splintering off into a million pieces around her, Tildy struggles to sift through the muddy waters of deception, whilst navigating her way down a pathway toward truth.
