What is it like to have the fixed assumptions of your world suddenly shaken? The people of Waldenstein, a tiny, isolated German community in early 20th-century Nova Scotia, survive lives of intolerable hardship through their unquestioning belief in a pre-Enlightenment Lutheranism.

Erika flees to England, to encounter her own uncertainties there, and years later her son, obsessed with finding his father, comes back to confront both the changing world of Waldenstein and his half-siblings.
