Recovering alcoholic Lena Costello is ready for a new life. After years in prison and a short stint in a halfway house, she buys a new home in rural Pennsylvania with money from her defunct plant nursery business. This quiet town appears by all accounts a perfect haven away from her dark past until she comes across a missing child poster. After befriending Vanessa, the mother of the missing boy, she learns that not all in this town is as it seems.

As she settles into her new life, Lena finally begins to regain control. To heal. But as she becomes further enmeshed in the town's secrets, she realizes this halcyon life is a mere illusion as the case of the missing boy becomes immediate and frighteningly familiar.
