For as long as anyone in Mary's village can remember, the Sisterhood has protected everyone from the Forest of Hands and Teeth. The village is bordered by fences to keep out the Unconsecrated and their hunger for human flesh. Guardians patrol the forest and mend the fences. No one recalls what life was like before the Return, but Mary's mother has told her stories: of the ocean, a place where there is nothing but water as far as the eye can see and where they can be safe from the Unconsecrated. When a breach in the fence occurs and the village is attacked, Mary and a few other survivors must leave the only place they have ever known and venture into the forest.
