Author Suzanne Jenkinsabout this book: A little girl is molested in mid-century New Orleans resulting in a lifetime of heartache and searching. Illegitimate, raised by a mentally ill mother, after she gives birth the baby is taken from her and she deteriorates mentally. Developing mysterious physical and mental symptoms, they are minimized by a rigid plan of self-care. She must not deviate from it, or the consequences are devastating.

Growing up, her genius is uncovered and she becomes a brain surgeon in the city of Manhattan. She lives and works in a cloistered environment, protected from the outside world, shielded from human interaction. One facet of her life remains the same; the longing for the baby she conceived from the molestation. "Alexandra travels to New Orleans to face the tragedies and secrets of her youth. As [she] searches for her daughter, she must grapple with long-hidden emotions and discover her own humanity" Publisher's Weekly

A compelling secret is finally revealed, taking her on a journey that ends in madness.
