Publisher's Summary

This is the story of two sisters, Mary and Grace. As small children, growing up at their property called Abyssinia, they played with their dolls' house together, side by side, always. Grace loved Mary, and Mary loved Grace. But inseparable bonds in life can be unexpectedly shattered. When this happens to Grace, she is plunged into a dark and mesmerizing world, a world full of bells and the ringing sky, of odd little children, strange events, and frighteningly bizarre grown-ups. A desperately moving and ultimately uplifting tale of childhood innocence: this is Ursula Dubosarsky at her most brilliant and satisfying.

I felt cheated, too.

I also bought this since it was a daily pick, but wish I had waited to read reviews first! There was so much missing in this story! Yeah, the author made a bunch of connections, but it was all a waste of time. It was definitely surreal, but really pointless. I'm with Suzanne and Rahul, it didn't match the publisher's summary at all.

I feel cheated

The publisher's summary does not seem to be about the book I heard. I agree with Rahul. I just wish I had read that review before I bought the book. What a waste.
