Nurture, education and rebellion – all trials of motherhood that can be challenging under the simplest of circumstances. But when Annie discovers an infant, swaddled in moss and sticks amongst the bombed houses of the brick-fields, she has no clue of how unusual her new daughter will grow up to be. No clue, except for the ever-present ravens carefully watching the mother-daughter relationship unfold…
