Set on an isolated farm in Shropshire in 1657, this folk thriller concerns Fanny Lye, a young woman living a remote, puritan existence with her older husband and son. The story follows Fanny as she learns to transcend her oppressive marriage and discover a new world of possibility - albeit at great personal cost. Living a life of Puritan stricture with husband John and young son Arthur, Fanny’s world is shaken to its core by the unexpected arrival of two strangers in need: a young couple on the run from a ruthless sheriff and his deputy.
