Dora Bannan hopes for a new life when she moves her husband and their three children to the wild moorland. She finds a job teaching music at a progressive school, where she also enrolls the children.

Sensual, unnerving, and gripping, Briscoe examines the lives we think we want, the choices we can't unmake, and the loves and losses we never forget.
