1947: Now that Margit and her family have settled into their new life in Toronto's Kensington Market, they have—at Margit's urging—agreed to take in a Polish orphan. Lilly speaks no English and jealously guards her only possession: a photo of her mother and father. Unable to communicate with Lilly, or to comfort her when she wakes in the night with bad dreams, Margit and her family are feeling the strain. Even Margit's cherished friendship with Alice is at the breaking point. Will Margit ever be able to break through to this troubled young girl? Will Alice ever speak to her again?
