Living in squalor in an abandoned shack with her large family, one day Lilli is taken in by a wealthy old woman who helps to civilise her. But there's an ongoing battle between Lilli and Miss Dalgleish, seemingly for possession of Lilli's very soul.Ahead of its time in its subtle and clever use of narrative techniques, The True Story of Lilli Stubeck acknowledges that no true story can ever be one-sided. Narrator Kit's multi-layered account of Lilli Stubeck's story is informed by Kit and others' recollections, town gossip and an important little black book.
