Young Welsh surgeon, Dafydd Woodruff, finds his confidence shattered after a disastrously botched operation on a child. Searching for the remotest possible place on earth in which to soothe his wounds and hide his shame, he seeks refuge in Moose Creek, a bleak community in the Canadian sub-Arctic.

Many years later, with Moose Creek a distant memory, the delicate equilibrium of Dafydd’s childless marriage is upset by a letter from Canada. A 13-year-old girl and her twin brother claim he is their father. Dafydd knows beyond doubt that he never slept with the twins’ mother, yet the letter stirs something in him.

To make sense of the impossible, Dafydd has no choice but to return to the Canadian wilderness, to the frozen outpost where no rules and few laws apply.  Dark secrets and mistakes which he had all but forgotten reveal themselves, and he finds that the truth is more complex and sinister than he could ever have imagined.
