Twelve year-old Cora Clyde is a farmer’s daughter in an isolated, turn of the century town. But when a vicious and mysterious pastor preaches that the countryside’s wild rabbits must be destroyed, Cora befriends a sentient rogue rabbit named Basajaun. As the rabbits’ hidden, magical world beckons to her, Cora becomes a target for the pastor’s deadly plan. Soon the secret behind the rabbits’ plight is unveiled, and Cora must fight to save not only their lives, but her own.
