“It’s okay, honey. Daddy’s never going to hurt momma ever again.” Lisbeth's mother's icy words lead her to a new hell called Maycomb Academy.
For seven year old Lisbeth Parker, life as she knows it comes to an abrupt end when she sees her mother clutching a smouldering, bloodied piece of firewood whilst standing over her father's bloodied corpse one August night in 1973.
"It's okay, honey. Daddy's never going to hurt momma ever again," are the last words Lisbeth hears from her mother before the police come and take her away, arresting her for murder. Her mother's words haunt her as she enters Maycomb Academy, a correctional boarding school for girls in Massacre County, Alabama. She will remain there for the next fourteen years.
As the years tread by, Lisbeth navigates her way through her now altered life, through gathering memories and reflections, through loss and love. Can she survive and rise above the harsh hand life has dealt her, or will she fall through the cracks and become a lost soul?
