But one night Mercy wakes to find a single snowdrop on her pillow: a sign of spring, light and other life. An encounter with the mysterious Claudius awakens memories of a happier time and leads Mercy to travel through the four circles of time her father has created to protect his daughters - each circle capturing a significant day in the family's past. As she does so, she weakens the reality of the eternal winter day of her present but it's the only way to reveal the truth of her family's secret and unlock an unpredictable yet hopeful future for her and her sister."@en ;
