In 1933, naive twenty-two year-old Alice, pregnant and unmarried, is in disgrace. She is banished from London to secluded Fiercombe Manor and the watchful eye of her mother's old friend, housekeeper Mrs. Jelphs. The manor's owners, the Stantons, live abroad. Alice is to have her baby there, give it up for adoption, and return home. But while awaiting the baby's birth, Alice senses that something is amiss with Fiercombe and its absentee owners.
