This prequel sets the stage for the Willowbrook Saga, a series on a town as a hub of human trafficking and exploitation crimes where women are objectified, showing that the town's unusual ways do not begin in the 1990s. Teenager Mona Williams wants to leave Willowbrook and build a future for herself against the backdrop of World War II Willowbrook. When the rather studious Mona finds that her married English teacher Albert Rawlins has eyes for her, combined with family turmoil, Mona finds herself turning to comfort in the older man's arms. These events set Mona in motion to be sucked into the future she wanted to avoid. At first she just wants to give up until she meets Irving Greymont, a corrupt lawyer's son who shows her true affection and renews her hope there is a chance to escape this life. But to free herself from one crime, will Mona have to commit another? Find out more in this value priced introduction to the story of the Willowbrook Saga (also available as part of the collection WILLOWBROOK SAGA: THROUGH THE GENERATIONS).
