Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
An emotionally raw and resonant story of love, loss, and the enduring power of friendship, following the lives of two young women connected by a home for "fallen" girls and inspired by historical events. In turn-of-the-20th-century Texas, "fallen" women have one hope: Berachah Home for the Redemption and Protection of Erring Girls. A century later, Cate Sutton, a reclusive university librarian, uncovers the hidden histories of two troubled women as she stumbles on the archives, and the cemetery, of Berachah's former grounds. What she discovers about their stories leads her to confront her own heartbreaking past.
