In Chicago's Ukrainian Village, Nadya Lysenko has built her life on a foundation of secrets. When she was 16, Nadya snuck out of her house in Western Ukraine to meet a fortuneteller in the woods. She never expected it to be the last time she would see her family. Decades later, Nadya continues to be haunted by the death of her parents and sisters. The myths and magic of her childhood are still a part of her reality: Dreams unite friends across time and space, house spirits misplace keys and glasses, and a fortuneteller's cards predict the future.
Nadya's beloved dead insist on being heard through dreams and whispers in the night. They want the truth to come out. Nadya needs to face her past and confront the secrets she buried. Too often the women of history have been silenced, but their stories have power-to reveal, to teach, and to transform. This is one such story.
