In a new world with very old world values, a woman's only purpose is to bear children. Ada assumes that she too will marry and someday take over her mother's role as midwife. She does marry but that is where the dream ends as she is barren. Her husband's family turns her out and she is blamed for being a witch. Running seems to be the only option - first to a convent and then later to the famous Hole in the Wall to become an outlaw. These women outlaws are planning something really big and dangerous and as Ada comes to know these women she finds herself being drawn to this life and changing the way the world views women. Being rejected from everything she has ever known may put her in a position to be strong and be herself - if she can live long enough. Violence and misadventures follow this group of society rejects in a wild Yee-haw western with a feminist bent.
