Story begun October 19, 2019. She started life as Juniper, the daughter of a miner and his wife. After an accident in her early years of life, she loses her ability to speak. To survive, she makes choices that sometimes go against what her father tried to teach her. Events force a choice that takes her far from her home. The years that follow bring both joys and sorrows, leading her further and further down the dark pathways of life. Each choice made chips away at who she once was, leaving behind someone barely recognizable. Eventually, she finds she is losing more than she bargained for, but by then it is far too late to stop her descent into madness. Meet Faith, the silent despair.
