Winters Town is a place named after the Winters family as their ancestors were the founding fathers. It’s a quiet little conservative town, a place where women are still thought to be inferior and lack the freedom to do as they wish.
The town has a small population and the Winters family owns the largest property there which consists of a manor overlooking a lake.
When Raina visits the town to see her ailing grandfather, she finds herself strangely attracted to the lake and notices her grandfather eyeing the lake as well.
Clearly it is no ordinary lake.
