In a dimly lit room in an 1890’s tenement house on Delancey Street, Lilly brushes the hair out of her mother’s face as she lies languishing in the last stages of tuberculosis. Reluctantly, Lilly succumbs to her own exhaustion, falling asleep by her mother’s side as she whispers her last words. Lilly wakes up in Connecticut’s vast countryside on a farm under the temporary care of Doctor Ashby, the doctor who tried to save her mother’s life. Feeling alone, she struggles to accept her mother’s death while adjusting to the new world she has found herself in, a world of uncertainty. Forging relationships with Doctor Ashby and his family, Lilly discovers they are as much in need of her as she is of them, while her loyal and untamed friend, Laurie, never fails to bring life into her soul and adventure into her heart even in her darkest times. As Lilly is going through her mother’s things, she happens upon letters revealing a past her mother hid from her compelling Lilly to remember her mother’s last whispered words, exposing lies that Lilly built her life upon, forever altering her future.
