Set in  the 1920's and  the Depression of 1934 in Seattle, Washington, the story opens on the day that twelve-year-old William Eng, along with all the other boys at Sacred Heart Orphanage, celebrate their birthday by going on an outing to a local movie theater. William is convinced that the woman he sees on screen is his mother, a mother he must find.  But William has been told that his mother has died, where will he find the truth?

 William is determined to find his mother.  After escaping Scared Heart with Charlotte, a blind girl from the orphanage,  he begins his search to find out the truth.  Who is that woman who looks so much like him and sings so beautifully?  

William and Willow's life come together and thus begins the story of Willow Frost.
