In The Lost Chapters, Eve has had a difficult life from birth in that she was adopted by a single mother who had another daughter. Life was so hard for this woman, but somehow she was able to pull herself up by her bootstraps and make something out of herself. Just when she thinks the coast is clear, she loses her job during a global pandemic. The moment everything seems like it's so bad that she can't take it, a ray of sunshine comes down in the form of a response to her application at Mara Institute for a substitute teacher position she applied for.
