Wyn McBride is a woman "of a certain age," an artist with a condo in Vancouver, and a studio in the valley. She is blessed with good friends and a career she enjoys, and has crafted a comfortable life for herself as a single, divorced woman—a life that’s almost too comfortable. When her ex-husband, Bruce, decides to re-marry, Wyn is forced to return to their former home to tidy up unfinished business. With the help of the new buyer, Liam Kelly, Wyn cracks open a window into her past. Her search reveals unexpected secrets about her family, beginning with the discovery of where her ancestors came from and why they chose to leave Ireland. Inspired by what she finds, Wyn spontaneously decides to accompany Liam on a trip to Ireland. He takes her on a whirlwind tour featuring what Wyn’s friend, Lu, calls “deep travel”. As the two explore history, poetry, sculpture, and ancient sacred sites, Wyn’s self-awareness grows. Embers tells the story of mysteries revealed, blood memories, the healing power of art, and how maturity is often a pre-requisite for enlightenment and meaningful change.
