In Bogard's debut novel, Lisa Harris, a white, suburban woman, finds herself in deep despair after a series of miscarriages and a failed marriage. Eager to embrace parenthood in any way possible, she accepts a job as foster mother in an impoverished area of North St. Louis to four teenage girls. Overwhelmed by the challenges of parenting troubled girls with a vastly different background, culture, religion and race, Lisa learns that healing herself and others requires more than good intentions.
