Magic is real.
One night, on the edge of an uncertain future, Susan stumbles across a world unlike any she’s known and finds a strangely familiar face. Is she what her mother has always said she is: a changeling? Infused with traditional folk music and set in the isolated hills of 1890s Appalachia, A Short Life of Trouble follows the diverging paths of three young women, each seeking an identity, a future, and a home to call their own.
