Faith's father has been found dead under mysterious circumstances, and as she is searching through his belongings for clues she discovers a strange tree. The tree only grows healthy and bears fruit if you whisper a lie to it. The fruit of the tree, when eaten, will deliver a hidden truth to the person who consumes it. The bigger the lie, the more people who believe it, the bigger the truth that is uncovered. The girl realizes that she is good at lying and that the tree might hold the key to her father's murder, so she begins to spread untruths far and wide across her small island community.

"In the underground city of Caverna, the world's most skilled craftspeople toil in the darkness to create delicacies beyond compare-- wines that remove memories, cheeses that make you hallucinate, and perfumes that convince you to trust the wearer, even as he slits your throat. On the surface, the people of Caverna seem ordinary, except for one thing: their faces are as blank as untouched snow. Expressions must be learned, and only the famous Facesmiths can teach a person to express (or fake) joy, despair, or fear-- at a steep price. Into this dark and distrustful world comes Neverfell, a girl with no memory of her past and a face so terrifying to those around her that she must wear a mask at all times. Neverfell's expressions are as varied and dynamic as those of the most skilled Facesmiths, except hers are entirely genuine. And that makes her very dangerous indeed ..."--Jacket

Fin da quando era piccola Faith ha imparato a nascondere dietro le buone maniere la sua intelligenza acuta e ardente: nell'Inghilterra vittoriana questo è ciò che devono fare le brave signorine. Figlia del reverendo Sunderly, esperto studioso di fossili, Faith deve fingere di non essere attratta dai misteri della scienza, di non avere fame di conoscenza, di non sognare la libertà. Tutto cambia dopo la morte del padre: frugando tra oggetti e documenti misteriosi, Faith scopre l'esistenza di un albero incredibile, che si nutre di bugie per dar vita a frutti magici capaci di rivelare segreti. È proprio grazie al potere oscuro di questo albero che Faith fa esplodere il coraggio e la rabbia covati per anni, alla ricerca della verità e del suo posto nel mondo.
