She seeks refuge in her memories of her idyllic stays with her grandparents in the picturesque East Anglian countryside which provide comforting visions of a simpler life. As she comes to terms with her surroundings and her own adolescence, Ruth finds the motivation to pursue the tantalizing dream which governs her life from early childhood, and discovers some family secrets along the way.
