In 1896, Lillie, the eldest child born into a prosperous farm family, finds herself in charge of raising her twelve siblings. And with it, all of the responsibilities of the family fall on her shoulders, including satisfying the needs of her overbearing, unyielding father. Lillie’s delicately balanced sanity is in question as she develops a relationship with the gypsies, fights off Indians, and eventually falls in love with the neighboring farmer. Her wavering sanity is tested as the asylum becomes her home. Lillie’s path is filled with poignant insights into sexual abuse, building relationships, faith, and learning to love.
