Sylvia has devoted her life to providing a safe haven in the village of Glen Avich for her daughter Pamela, a happy little girl with a big heart. Since her daughter's medical results came in and Pamela's father Douglas walked out, Sylvia has vowed that no one would hurt Pamela again, least of all Douglas's bully of a father, who forbade his wife Morag to have anything to do with her granddaughter.

When Sylvia loses her mother, and her brother moves away, she finds herself alone and longing for a family for Pamela. So when a letter arrives from the recently widowed Morag, inviting them to visit her at home on the tiny island of Seal, Sylvia agrees to go.
