    One night is enough to swallow a lifetime of lives. When Ruth Ardingly and her family first drive up from London and view The Well, they are enchanted by a jewel of a place. But the locals suspect foul play in its verdant fields and drooping fruit trees, and Ruth becomes increasingly isolated as she struggles to explain why her land flourishes whilst her neighbours' produce withers and dies. Fearful of envious locals and suspicious of those who seem to be offering help, Ruth grows less and less sure whom she can trust.

Doch das vermeintliche Paradies, in dem sie leben, wird zu ihrer ganz persönlichen Hölle. Als dort auch noch ihr Enkelkind ums Leben kommt, kann Ruth nicht einmal mehr sich selbst trauen.

    When she was 16, Diana left her unhappy family and set out to make a new life. Twenty-five years later, she has arrived. Recently married to Edmund, she lives with him at his family's historic country home. But when Diana hears that her mother has died, she impulsively asks estranged half-sister Valerie and her nine-year-old son to stay. The night of the funeral, fuelled by wine and years of resentment, the sisters argue, and a terrible accident occurs. The foundations of a well-ordered life start to crack, and the lies begin to surface.
