Branded a traitor, she is brutally punished. Shunned by her community, Brenda retreats to Harris, the remote Hebridean island that is her father's birthplace. She tries to put her ordeal behind her. But it's difficult when she knows she's been betrayed. Just as she begins to settle into her new life, she is forced to confront the younger sister who cruelly broke her trust. Can she forgive her?
