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.
Amber, locked up in a juvenile detention center, meets Ori, who was convicted of a murder she may not have committed in this examination of justice and class rendered in eerie, otherwordly prose with a touch of magical realism.
