She is the homeless woman in town and sometimes she comes to see Lucy. Everytime that she visits Lucy she sings the same song. Lucy is always very disturbed after these visits. Her mother had her at the age of 18 and went insane right after her birth.
Lucy knows that she is going to be different, until she is raped at a school dance and ends up pregnant. She doesn't want to be like her mother, but all signs seem to indicate that she is following her down the same path. There are more forces at work on Lucy and her family. Lucy discovers that every woman in her family has had a baby at the age of 18 and has went insane right after.

This was a great suspense novel about family and tragedy. I really enjoyed this book.
