Simon Jordan is hired to do a psychiatric evaluation of " celebrated murderess " Grace Marks, who supporters hope will be set free as a result of Jordan's report.
Grace has been imprisoned for murder for the past 15 years while her co-conspirator James McDermott was hanged. Though she has no memory of the actual murders, she tells Dr.
Jordan about immigrating from Ireland to Canada and finding employment as a maid. Her mother died on the voyage, and her abusive and alcoholic father sexually assaulted her.
He finally demands that she go to earn a living and support the family. She is distressed at the idea of leaving her younger siblings alone, and says she had promised to come back, as at the time she had meant it.
She leaves to find work in Toronto. Throughout their conversations, she has flashbacks involving the murders, trial and conviction.
Jordan appears to have developed an interest in Grace and fantasizes about her. Grace continues to tells Dr. Jordan about her friendship with Mary Whitney, another maid.
Mary is outgoing and an advocate for equality; she attempts to impart these ideas to Grace and the two quickly become friends. She is introduced to a peddler named Jeremiah who reads her fortune, telling her that she will encounter difficulties but all will be fine.
Eventually, Mary becomes pregnant but refuses to tell Grace who the father is, although it is implied that it is the son of the master of the house.
She later dies of complications after an abortion and Grace hallucinates that she hears Mary speaking to her.
She then faints, lies unconscious for a period of time, wakes up in distress looking for Grace and claims she is Mary, then faints again. Once she regains consciousness the second time, she relates she doesn't have any memory of what the other women in the house told her she had said and done.
Jordan continues to fantasize about Grace while they continue their sessions, speaking of the events after Mary's death. Grace meets Nancy, a housekeeper for Mr.
Thomas Kinnear. Nancy offers Grace a job with more pay. Though another maid warns Grace not to take the job, she accepts, in part because Nancy reminds Grace of Mary.
After arriving at the farm in Richmond Hill, Ontario , Grace meets Jamie, a younger farm boy, as well as James McDermott, a farmworker.
McDermott is disliked by Nancy for his abrupt and explosive personality, and Nancy shows a strictness on the way that things should be handled in the home.
He flirts with Grace, who does not reciprocate. Nancy gives Grace a tour of the house, including the cellar where the murders will take place.
Grace demonstrates loneliness, missing Toronto. Jordan develops a crush on Grace while his landlady, Mrs.
Humphrey, has developed an unrequited attraction to him. Grace continues to recount her life's story to him. When Nancy decides to dismiss McDermott, he confirms to Grace that Nancy and Mr.
Kinnear are sleeping together. Grace loses respect for Nancy upon finding out that Nancy is pregnant, and they begin to quarrel.
According to Grace, McDermott says that they should kill Nancy and Mr. Kinnear and throw their bodies down the cellar. However, according to McDermott's written confession, Grace wanted to murder Nancy and Mr.
Kinnear by poisoning them which McDermott refused to help her. Jeremiah comes to say goodbye due to a change in career, and asks Grace to run away with him, but she decides not to when he reveals that he does not believe in marriage.
Grace overhears Nancy considering dismissing her because she is quarrelsome and talks to herself.
