Description
Wilhelmina Cooper is told that the key to her biological father's identity lies somewhere in her family's history. She buries herself in the research of her twisted family tree and finds that a chorus of voices from the town's past -- some sinister, all fascinating -- rises up around her to tell their side of the story.
