Violet, born in 1900, loses family and friends and is treated as an outcast. To be socially accepted, she must face her own shadows and create a new self.
Innocence and optimism carry her through some dark times. She discovers a spirit guide and finds herself close to the people she loves. But in a house filled with secrets, how can she convince others she is sane and telling the truth?
Based on a family story, Violet's treatment as socially undesirable reects the fate of many women in the early twentieth century. It is by turns darkly comic and heart breaking.
