In 1904, Rafe Davis left Tlws as the libertine son of the local lord. Six years later, he returns as the new reverend.
After his long exile from Wales, Rafe struggles to win over a village that remembers his rakish past all too well. Scorned by his new flock, he finds himself drawn to Nia Rhys, a young, unmarried mother and fellow outcast.
But Rafe's heart still belongs to the lost love whose tragic death led him to God, and Nia's to her first love, who abandoned her with a child at the age of fifteen. And neither's past is ready to let them go.
