Willow is unhappy at home. Her mother is a psychologist who was brought up in a children’s home. When Willow's mother is in the grip of strong emotions, she pushes her Willow away.
At school, many children view Willow as a 'weirdo'. Feeling isolated and lonely, she tells her Georgian house about her problems. Over the years, the old house learned how to chat with humans. The house - a member of the Order of the Custodians (kind humans, dragons and animals) - directs Willow to a sanctuary for unhappy kids.
The Custodians have to defend themselves against attacks from the Nastorians (openly nasty beings) and the Pretenders (Nastorians in disguise). The Pretenders operate the Elite Alliance, through which they control people and organisations. There are repeated attempts by the Pretenders to trap Willow.
Children stay in the sanctuary during school holidays. After returning home, Willow enjoys a support network of members of the Nobody's Club for Children with Sad Eyes.
