For more than two hundred years, the Owens women had been blamed for everything that went wrong in their Massachusetts town. And Gillian and Sally endured that fate as well: As children, the sisters were forever outsiders, taunted, talked about, pointed at.

But all Gillian and Sally wanted was to escape. One would do so by marrying, the other by running away.
