Mary Jack Jordan just wants to have a normal, stable family life-- but it doesn't look like her wish will come true any time soon. Although her foster father is a loving minister, his wife seemingly hates children. The two other children living there, silent, abused Jane and rebellious teenage Adam only add to Mary Jack's feeling of hopelessness. When the minister's sister, whose brain has been impaired by a stroke, comes to live with the family, the situation only becomes more tense. At last, her foster mother sends the three children and her sister-in-law to spend the summer in an isolated country cabin. When the woman whose supposed to be watching them runs off, Mary Jack feels like the only capable person there, and the stress of holding together this "family" threatens to break her. But she slowly learns that there are different ways of assuming responsibility, just as there are different kinds of families...
