Thirteen-year-old Grace lives in the Belgian convent where she was abandoned as a baby in the 1970s. After years of being her sister Dotty's caretaker and companion, Grace is left alone when Dotty dies. While doing a research project for school, Grace finds a hidden diary from the 1940s, which turns out to be the key to unravelling the mystery of her own life.
