Dr. Merritt Hall- Davis is born into a wealthy family and becomes a successful physician, as well as a happy wife and mother. But outbursts stemming from her mental condition destroy her career and her family. After the deaths of her husband and daughter, she plunges further into the depths of her illness. Tormented mercilessly by voices, asleep or awake, which first appear when she is a young woman in college and reoccur intermittently during the remainder of her life, Merritt suffers from drastic mood swings. Although she receives treatment for her mental condition, she eventually runs away from her sorrows and finds herself on the streets of Valeria, Indiana. There she spends fifteen years of her life. Molly, as she becomes known on the street, finds friends among the other street people, ranging from Old Johnny, who becomes her protector, to Petey, a fifteen-year-old runaway. During Molly's years on the street, she suffers from hunger, exposure, derision, and brutality. Covering a wide array of human emotions, Molly is a love story and a tragedy; it is a tale of hope and hopelessness; and it is a story of great courage in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Formerly released as "Riches to Rags."
