Emily dreams of birds. She feels constrained by nearly everything--her overbearing sisters, the expectation to be a proper young lady, and even her stiff white pinafore. Kitty feels undone.

When the two girls meet by chance, on a beach on the outskirts of Victoria, BC, in 1881, neither knows that their one day together will change their lives forever.
