Since the tragic death of his wife six years ago, Nick Langtree has lived a quiet life alone on his farm, Winters Hill. The townsfolk of White Gum Creek have tried to reach out to Nick, but he’s pushed them all away.
Whenever Nick comes into White Gum Creek for supplies, Natasha Duran always makes sure she talks to him as she serves him at the bakery. Nick intrigues Tash, but she’s not sure if it’s because she feels sorry for him or if there might be something more.
Finally, encouraged by the warmth of a few old and new friends, Nick gradually begins to re-engage with the outside world. Then suddenly some minor vandalism on his farm escalates and odd things begin to happen at Winter’s Hill. Is someone out to hurt Nick or have his years of solitude started playing tricks on his mind?
