Summary
Fifteen-year-old Damaris can no longer stay on her family's farm and endure her father's drunken rages. With the help of her heartbroken mother, Damaris makes her escape, taking along two family treasures: her grandmother's lacy golden brooch and her grandfather's watch. These items and her name are the only legacy she has from her past. Her mother once told her that "Damaris" came from the Bible and had a special meaning. But growing up without ever seeing a Bible, Damaris doesn't know what that meaning is. Far from home and feeling so alone, she wonders if the Bible can help her find out who she is and what the future might hold for her
