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.

The best one yet! Great story and narration

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Drowned Maiden's Hair?

I enjoyed every bit of it. However, the fire scene was very exciting.

Which scene was your favorite?

I thought the scenes with Miss Kitterage were fabulous. I just love to hate her!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The end, of course. I had high hopes for a happy ending and wasn't disappointed.

Any additional comments?

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.
