All families harbor secrets, but the Rose family secrets are like no others. Josey Rose's childhood has been molded by such mysteries as the whereabouts of his missing mother, who he suspects is still alive; the inexplicable abuse by his father, Willie, a man who can empty a whiskey bottle as quickly as he can fill it up again with tiny model wonderlands; and the bizarre actions of Grandma Ru, a slightly mad woman who seem to know far more than she reveals. Josey's life takes a turn when he meets the enchanting and vulnerable Lily, a young woman who lives in an abandoned chapel in the woods and who has a deep, yet unexplained, connection to Josey's family. Both victims of Willie Rose's torment, Josey and Lily quickly find comfort in each other-and within the gray area a between mystery and truth, they discover that the only escape from their present lives is through a dark and unpleasant past.
