The Crowdies have worked the same landscape on the Scottish coast for generations. When Bern Crowdie dies, everyone expects the farm to pass to his youngest daughter Nina who, with her young son Barnaby, has been living and working with her father for the past five years. Her older sister Bette left when she was 18, vowing never to return. Now a successful lawyer in London, it's doubtful she'll even make the funeral - or the reading of their father's will. When Bette's life takes an unexpected turn, she finds herself back home, and both sisters are shocked to discover that their father decided to split the farm between the two of them after all. With the farm sinking under the weight of hidden debt, secrets begin to emerge - some that bring the sisters closer, some that could save the farm, and some that mean the family could lose it forever. But it's the discovery of an old orchard that could change everything.
