Late 18th century North Carolina. Sweet, naïve—and psychic—pre-adolescent Jenny has just been adopted into a wonderful, yet different family. She knows Mommy and Grannie are from someplace where carriages fly in the air and books have moving pictures, but she doesn’t care. Her new family tries to protect her from her past. However, no amount of love can prevent the problems the chatty young girl ‘sees.’ But she won’t stop trying.
