Eighteen-year-old Mila has been in the foster system since her mother abandoned her. Now that she's graduating high school, she has nothing to do and nowhere to call home. So when she gets an offer to work as an intern on the Farm, she readily accepts. Her main job is to take care of eight-year-old Lee. At first the Farm seems like an idyllic paradise, a remote place on the cliffs with view of the sea far below. But Mila soon realises there's something more sinister going on. Lee's recent trauma causes Mila's own frightening memories to bubble to the surface. And then there are Billy and Liz. What is it they want from her? How much is she willing to give? Whispered secrets. Sideways glances. A dangerous undertow of violence, complicity, desire, and fear.
