Summary
A frightened, quiet child haunted by ghosts and inner voices, punished in Catholic school by the Mother Superior, and burdened by her illegitimacy (she and her older twin brothers are viewed as her mother's "mortal sins"), begins to withdraw into silence
Summary
Destined for limbo because of her illegitimacy and labeled 'retarded' because of a learning disability, young Mari-Jen Delene retreats into silence. Around her revolves a vividly drawn cast of characters: her mother Adele; Misha, a Polish Jew; the willful, bitter Mother Superior; and her powerfully intelligent twin brothers, who sleep beside a map of the world they long to explore.
