What Is the Story of 7th Monarch?
Miriam Hemmerick is in her 30s, a genius and a recluse. She was one of the most impressive students at her high school, from which she graduated at a very young age, and she earned the distinction of being named a “monarch,” only the 7th in the history of the school. Now, years later, Miriam lives in her childhood home amid endless stacks of catalogued newspapers and an undying obsession with the U.S. space program. A social worker comes to the house when she suspects that Miriam is cashing her parents' social security checks, and it turns out the parents are nowhere to be found. The investigation into what happened to them unfolds, set against the backdrop of local politics. As it does, long-hidden secrets—and not just Miriam’s—come to light.
