When Alec Gant dies, Janet finally learns what had happened to her best friend Hannah who disappeared when they were only 15 years old. Hannah was pregnant at the time and Janet, along with another good friend Elspeth Strickland, had assumed she had run away with the father of the child. Instead they learn from Hannah's mother, who knew nothing of her daughter's whereabouts, that Hannah's father had her put away in an insane asylum where, 38 years later, she still resides. They arrange for Hannah to come home but after being away for so long, she has trouble re-adapting to life in the community. It is also apparent that several are afraid of the secrets she may reveal. For Dr. Finlay, he has to come to terms with the truth when he sees the name of one of the doctors who committed the 15 year-old in the first place. Arden House is in a bit of turmoil as well as the workmen have started on Dr. Finlay's renovations.
