Rosemary doesn't talk much, and about certain things she's silent.

She had a sister, Fern, her whirlwind other half, who vanished from her life in circumstances she wishes she could forget. And it’s been ten years since she last saw her beloved older brother Lowell. Now at college, Rosemary starts to see she can’t go forward without going back to the time when aged five, she was sent away from home to her grandparents and returned to find Fern gone.
