Ella Davies lives an unhappy life in a small settlement on one of the remotest islands in the world. Haunted by past tragedy and burdened by ongoing struggles, she flees into the forest every day to a secret place that no one else knows about, where she cries out to God for deliverance. And then one gray morning, a storm blows a wayward ship onto the beach. The only surviving crew member, a mysterious young man named Matthew Gethin, claims to be a prophet with healing powers.
As he turns the settlement upside down, Ella desperately hopes that God has at last answered her prayers, but she finds that clearly discerning the will of God is difficult. As conflicts arise, she makes a fateful decision that will change her life forever and reveal, once and for all, what she has truly sought.
