‘It was the afternoon, between four and five o’clock, that she recalled with most dislike; ..., and the worst of all the first day of the week in the middle of winter.’
At first her mother is a steadying influence, but when her beloved mama dies it changes the family dynamics fundamentally. We follow Hedwig as she grows up and observe her repeated clashes with the unsympathetic housekeeper.
Again her symptoms are treated as a nervous disease but the root of the problem is left untreated. Fatally, Hedwig is sent to the sea side alone.
Hedwig stops fighting her demons and flees to London. Totally unequipped to face living in the metropolis alone she is taken advantage of and ends up penniless in Paris.
Will she at long last find peace and put her life in order by making her own choices? And will she find her spiritual home?
