A chilling literary novel about a nomadic young woman who becomes tangled in the stories of her past and the search for a wild boy.

Teenage runaway Jamie Hall -- entangled by circumstance and poverty -- seems incapable of escaping the mountain-and-valley watershed that was the birthplace of her maternal grandparents. Working as a housekeeper for Margaret, a retired photographer who leaves behind a pictorial chronicle of the valley's history, Jamie finds herself trapped in a town -- and amongst a group of locals -- unable to shake the relentless grip of the past.
