A sailing ship leaves Scotland, headed for South Australia. For the passengers, the voyage offers a fresh start in a promising land. But on the way they meet sudden malice and inexplicable danger and at the end of their voyage, the ship is wrecked in a wild winter storm.
There are only two survivors - a seventeen year old girl and a young seaman - who take shelter in a cave to wait out the storm. There they find warmth, security and love. When the storm is over and they finally emerge, there is something left behind. Something evil.
A hundred years later, another young couple uncover the place where the lovers found sanctuary.
But some things are best left undisturbed . . .
