After living abroad for the last twenty-one years, Matthew returns to
his native village in England for the reading of his estranged father,
Gerald's, will. Expecting this to be a mere formality, and that he'll be
able to leave it in the hands of the lawyer and return to his well-ordered
life, Matthew is shocked to learn the extent of his inheritance, and the
responsibilities it entails. The only good thing Matthew can see about the
situation is the chance to renew contact with his childhood friend, Jack,
who now runs the village inn where Matthew is staying.
Jack, who's now the village Pack Alpha, is delighted to see Matthew again
after all these years, but when he discovers that Gerald could not have been
Matthew's real father, a fact of which Matthew himself is unaware, he
unwittingly sets in motion a series of events that will end up changing both
their lives forever.
