For 100 years, the state used Hedley Hall as a warehouse for wayward girls…and promptly forgot about them. When Chelsea Wilkins, a pretty fifteen-year old, arrived at the institution, she was struck by the haunted looks in the eyes of the other girls. Beyond the charming lobby, Chelsea found herself living a nightmare. She heard the girls screaming at night, heard weak crying.
“You’ll do fine here”, said Mrs. Luckinbill, headmistress of Hedley Hall, as she examined Chelsea’s features. “You’ll make pretty babies.”
As Chelsea lay in bed each night, a man entered her darkened room. She struggled against his advances, without success. Eventually pregnant, she’d see if Mrs. Luckinbill’s prediction was accurate.
For three months, Chelsea thought about how she and her unborn baby could escape. She had one chance.
Could Chelsea save herself and her baby? Would she finally reveal the secrets of Hedley Hall?
