"Every evening, Alice and five other people gather at the forest's edge, trying to call their dogs back from the feral pack they've joined. Alice's boyfriend had abandoned her dog there, in an act of anger and desperation. Most of the rest have similar tales of jealousy or vengeance enacted upon them through their dogs: Jamie is rebelling against his stepfather; Lily, who has suffered brain damage, is considered irresponsible." "Becoming more deeply involved, Alice moves out to a cabin on land owned by Malcolm, one of the group, whose motives in having her there are suspicious. As she falls in love with the wildlife biologist whose wolf has gained lead of the pack, she feels the tug between love's wild power and her desire to domesticate it. After a tragic accident, all members of the group must rethink their lives and find their places in an untamed world."--BOOK JACKET

Annie kommt im Sommer 1865 zu den Dashells als Hausmädchen. Ihre Vergangenheit ist schrecklich; die grosse Hungersnot in Irland zwang ihre Eltern, sie als Kleinkind nach England zu schicken, wo sie aus einem Waisenhaus heraus mit 6 Jahren ihre Stellung bei Mrs. Gilbey antrat, die ihre Angestellten wie Sklaven hielt. Nun, als junges Mädchen, kommt Annie in eine völlig neue Situation. Die Dashells sind kein gewöhnliches Ehepaar: Isabelle lebt nur ihrer Leidenschaft, der Fotografie, die sie künstlerisch betreibt, und Eldon ist Kartenzeichner mit viel Fantasie und wenig Erfolg. Dieser stellt sich bei Isabelle ein, als sie Annie als Modell benutzt. Annie entwächst ihrer Dienstbotenrolle immer mehr, was selbst Eldon bemerkt. Doch die Idylle endet in einer Katastrophe
