It’s the summer of 1911. Thirteen-year-old Victoria’s life has changed dramatically in the past year – her mother has died in childbirth, along with the baby brother she’d longed for and her father has already remarried. Victoria doesn’t care much for her stepmother, or her stepbrother, Jacob. But when Victoria is suddenly struck down with an illness that leaves her partially paralysed, her relationship with her new family members begins to change as they give her the hope that she just might run again.
