None of us see ourselves as others see us.Through the innocent eyes of 13 year-old Lily we see the pathos inherent to the human condition.
When she asks her family, "Why doesn't my father live with us?" nobody gives her an answer. His absence is a tragedy that draws the family together in a dark denial of their past.
Lily loses and finds her father, Loses and finds herself.
Lily (of Dust on the Bible)
and her family experience first-hand
