Laura Amy Schlitz delivers this Horn Book Fanfare and Cybils Award-winning best-seller that whisks 11-year-old Maud Flynn from a cold New England orphanage and into the stately mansion of three wealthy spinsters. After the Hawthorne sisters adopt her in 1909, they tell her she's their secret child. She must remain indoors at all times and must never stand in front of windows. Since these old ladies treat her so well, Maud doesn't mind their restrictions. But she does wonder what could possibly require such secrecy.More

The best one yet! Great story and narration
I enjoyed every bit of it. However, the fire scene was very exciting.
I thought the scenes with Miss Kitterage were fabulous. I just love to hate her!
The end, of course. I had high hopes for a happy ending and wasn't disappointed.
Ms. Cuervo did a terrific job with the narration, changing her voice to match the characters. Her pace was excellent. I will look for her again.
