A young woman is shifted from foster home to foster home after her mother is sent to prison for killing an ex-lover.
Astrid Magnusson, a young Californian woman, is forced to trade her enjoyably avant-garde existence in for life in a series of foster homes after mother Ingrid murders an ex-lover with the poison from a white oleander flower. Astrid spends the next decade on the fringes of society in the absence of a maternal figure, staying in touch with Ingrid through a long-running series of letters designed to inform her about her life while teaching her about true love.
