Trendy hipster dyke Felix joins her stoic aunt Anna Lisa in a hardscrabble town in the Sierra foothills after being gay bashed, and explores the town's namesake mystery: the disappearance of 16-year-old Lilac Ambrose in 1899.
A spellbinding narrative that's part history, part mystery, very contemporary... with a dash of magical realism thrown in for good measure.
