Fourteen year old Faith has an insatiable desire to learn about the natural world but is stifled under the expectations and mores of Victorian England. When her scientist father dies, Faith suspects he has been murdered because of secret knowledge of a tree that flourishes on lies and she determines to find her father's killer and the tree. Told in vivid historical detail and heart stopping prose.
