Publisher's Summary

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.

loved it!

This was fascinating -- I was drawn into the story almost immediately and found myself taking a longer route to work so I could listen just a bit more. The storyline is excellent, and if you love melodramas, this one will keep you happy for many hours.

this is one book I won't soon forget.

I love this book so much I've read it 3 times. Maude is an interesting protagonist and the Hawthorne sisters all have fascinating personalities that make them unique. this book will stick in the back of your head until you finish it and get the answers to the questions it presents. (You may still have a few even after the book is done!)
