Lydia Adams is a young girl from Heavens Way—lost and mistreated. Living in a tortured town and a house of hell, Lydia has nowhere to turn. Her mentally addled, drug addict mother can’t protect her from her sick father, who is after her all the time; there is no hope for a stable home life. Unable to escape, she prays, hoping that someone will hear and answer those prayers. The adults in her life do not protect her; they take advantage of her. Even so, Lydia finds some good people who offer some sanctuary from the abuse of her parents. There’s Frannie, her warm and understanding neighbor who offers baked goods, a mother’s touch, and a welcome embrace. And then there’s Sam, the rebel who offers her love and the ability to see herself clearly for the first time. When society realizes that Lydia isn’t safe in the arms of her family any longer, she is sent to a state home. With everything changing, she’s hoping for better things—but this new home might not be any safer than her family home.
