"Narrator Karen Chilton gives a riveting performance in this genre-defying masterpiece...The echoes of Chilton''s haunting and beautiful narration will reverberate long after this powerful audiobook is over." -- AudioFile Magazine

A triumphant, genre-bending breakout novel from one of the boldest new voices in contemporary fiction


Vern-seven months pregnant and desperate to escape the strict religious compound where she was raised-flees for the shelter of the woods. There, she gives birth to twins, and plans to raise them far from the influence of the outside world.

To understand her metamorphosis and to protect her small family, Vern has to face the past, and more troublingly, the future-outside the woods. Finding the truth will mean uncovering the secrets of the compound she fled but also the violent history in America that produced it.
