    On a summer evening in 1931, Lilly Blackwood glimpses circus lights from the grimy window of her attic bedroom. Lilly isn't allowed to explore the meadows around Blackwood Manor. She's never even ventured beyond her narrow room. Momma insists it's for Lilly's own protection, that people would be afraid if they saw her.

    Noch nie im Leben durfte die zehnjährige Lilly ihre Kammer auf Blackwood Manor verlassen. Die Menschen würden bei ihrem Anblick zu Tode erschrecken, so ihre Mutter.

Ihr Schicksal bessert sich erst, als sie entdeckt, wie gut sie mit den Elefanten umgehen kann. Aber erst zwanzig Jahre später wird ihr hartes Los gesühnt.
