Jen McDonald, a small, neat, almost-overlooked spinster in her fifties faces a quandary. Traumatised by a car accident after seeing a mysterious, dark-shrouded figure of a woman on the road, Jen believes she may be losing her mind.
Maybe there is instead a far more malign reason for the mysterious and frightening events, deaths and disappearances in Emerald Hills. Perhaps the enigmatic and otherworldly Fionn has the answers she needs?
As the mystery unfolds before her, Jen begins to feel trapped, not only between warring factions of the supernatural Faerie race, but also by her desire for one of them.
She does not want to be a heroine, but it is possible that her newly discovered and special gift will force her to be the town's defender.
