Hugh is struggling to cope after the sudden death of his wife, Wenda, a woman who had been traumatised by a childhood tragedy in which she lost her mother.  Despite support from his friends, especially Nancy and Manny, he decides the only way to seek closure is to travel to Carnmore, Wenda’s childhood village in rural Scotland.   When he gets there however, he has a chance encounter with Valerie, a woman who claims to be the girl who lost her mother in that tragic incident.  Confused and angry, Hugh nevertheless finds himself irresistibly attracted to Valerie, and to Carnmore.
