The sound of the old pickup sent a shiver of dread up Flora's backbone, announcing the arrival of the family she didn't know she had-and certainly didn't want. As if losing Gram wasn't terrible enough, now she was faced with a bunch of boisterous strangers who had come to take over the house and her life.
How could she deal with the rude ten-year-old Curtis, or moody fifteen-year-old Doreen, or Missy, the seven-year-old pest who followed her every move?
Her only escape was in fleeing to the peaceful solitude of the woods behind the house; but even that comfort was soon threatened-first by Aunt Abbie's new rules, then by something else...something strange and frightening.
A warm and tender story of a young girl learning to cope with loss and adjusting to having a whole new family.
