Abuse is rampant in our world, our country, our neighborhood. Physical abuse is immediately apparent in bloody wounds that leave scars. Sexual abuse may be buried and not apparent until years later. Verbal abuse cuts deeply into the psyche and may not ever show itself. But if it does, it has left a festering aching yet hidden wound that can never be excised. It is as damaging to an afflicted person as a broken wing is to a bird. Helens world, gentle and loving, is crammed into a tiny home filled with many children and everyday common ailments. Everyday illnesses and very little money. Each member of the family tends to one another. Her adoring father sees the deterioration that poverty brings. He comes up with a scheme. And it involves Helen. We follow Helen as she navigates through her stormy world as her family and friends are subjected to the worlds abuses, in one form or another. And then, it finds her. And she is prepared.
