The year is 1960. Unmarried, pregnant girls only have one choice - to be sent to a maternity home to have the baby, and give it up for adoption. Such is the case for thirteen-year-old Minerva Henderson. Forced by the nuns to change her name to Grace, life at St. Margaret's Maternity Home is unbearable. But when Grace runs away, hitching a ride with two young boys, has she jumped from the frying pan into the fire?
