a roaring night on the town, fun-loving flapper Lilly Margolis, dazed
and disoriented, twists her ankle and falls into the backyard of a
wealthy family where the effects of the Great War—over for more than
half a decade—are still endured. Inside the walls of the Burnside
mansion, Cullen Burnside, a disillusioned and disfigured veteran, and
his widowed mother, Betty Ruth, who daily slips a little further into
dementia, lead a lonely existence … until Lilly. Whimsical,
lighthearted, and beautiful, she rejuvenates their sad, disconnected
lives and blossoms in the light of their attention.
But Lilly,
like Cullen, is hiding from a painful past. And when Cullen insists on
returning her to her faraway home, their budding attraction seems
destined to die on the vine. The resulting road trip becomes a journey
of self-discovery—but what will Cullen and Lilly find at journey’s end?
