St Brigid's is a remote island off the west coast of Ireland. It is a barren place and its small community is dwindling. But according to rumour it is a magical place, home to a healing well. Two sisters, Rose and Emer, have resisted the call of the mainland. Rose is beautiful, blessed with love and many children. Emer is unlovely and, worse still, she is cursed by the strange currents that run through her fingers. When a dazzling stranger alights on St Brigid's, she is shunned. She has come in search of a miracle, and the islanders keep their secrets close. But gradually she insinuates her way into the sisters' lives, and even Emer opens her heart. Little do they realise that her quest will endanger the lives of all who remain on the island. Passion will endanger everything they hold dear.

When Stella Swift is discovered holding a shard of broken glass near her newborn baby boy, fears that she might harm William result in her being taken to Catcombe - the local asylum. Although the regime is not as harsh as it once was, it's not somewhere that Tom wants to send his wife - but he has no choice. Turning to his kind-hearted sister-in-law Grace for help taking care of his other three children whilst he keeps working at the mine seems like the simplest solution until Stella is well - if only there wasn't the shared history between Tom and Grace... At first Catcombe seems to offer the respite Stella needs - until one day she becomes convinced that the baby the nurses have given to her is not William. Is Stella losing her mind? Or is it true that a mother will always know her own child?

When a child is stolen by a government working with a church and sent across to the other side of the world there are consequences that extend through the generations. Father Brendan O'Farrell knew all those years ago that the trade in abandoned children was wrong but was powerless to stop it. Or did he have more personal reasons for not having intervened? And how was his housekeeper Ann Schofield involved in what became a shameful business? Sean Patrick O'Brien is currently a lifer at HMP Manchester and being prepared for release by psycho-therapist Angela Barker. But the details of his life stretching back to when he was abandoned in a Catholic orphanage in 1962, to his transportation to Australia and the twists of fate that lead him back to his birth country and the crime that led to his imprisonment, are tragic in the extreme, but what connection do they have with a series of murders that DCI Sara Hoyland and her team are investigating? The murder count rises and her officers, despite their personal distractions, are battling to find clues that will lead them to identifying the killer. If Sean Patrick O'Brien wasn't incarcerated then he might be considered responsible but could he hold the key to who might be behind the killings? And when the truth finally does come out, what will be left of the lives of Father Brendan O'Farrell and a respectable Cheshire family, now tarnished by murder, who knew nothing of their mother's past?
