Belinda lived a troubled life. A mother who sold her body and used heroin was murdered at the youthful age of twenty-seven, leaving her six-year-old daughter a ward of the state of Louisiana. Being tossed to and fro from one foster home to the next, Belinda is placed with John and Victoria Brittingham. These people are who any child would be overjoyed to live with and have as parents. A beautiful home, a room of there own, new clothes and toys would be a dream come true. But what lies behind the walls of this house is hardly what little Belinda dreamed of, and she will find out in the worse way, the secrets it harbors.
