Lizzie Martin is grieving.
A road trip to Wales with her best friend, Louise should help and while she’s there, she wants to find her real mother and the truth about her father.
Lizzie returns home to discover her old boss, Edward Brown, is manipulating her life from prison. She must deflect angry phone calls from her ex-husband, consider a house move and new career path and become a modern day Boudicca, protecting those she cares about.
There is hope though.
The squirrels are on her side, the rescued chickens love their new home and, inspired by the Welsh landscape, Lizzie takes her magic out of The Sanctuary.
