When her grandmother passed away, the girl was left with no one.  She and her grandmother had lived in the small cottage on the shore for as long as she could remember.  With nothing to keep her there, the girl set out to follow the crows who seemed to be beckoning her.  Her journey takes her away from the life she'd known.  But she also learns that there are others who are as alone as she is.
