Sun splashes over circles you draw.

Annie knows of no American Indian connection to her family in the region around Stony Point, the quaint New England fishing village on Maine's rugged coastline where the mystery unfolds. But this very personal glimpse into Passamaquoddy life is somehow threaded through Annie's family history. She is driven to find the connection.

Let the good people of Stony Point warm your heart and the mysteries of Annie's Attic keep you on the edge of your seat.« less
I see others gave this book a great review. I don't. I thought Annie and Alice were behaving like 12 year olds, not people in their 40s.
