P.S. I am a children's librarian and come across many new books and am moved to review very few. Trust me. This one is a winner.
Winnie and Danny drop off Felicity --- and her beloved companion, the stuffed bear Wink --- with Danny's family, whom Felicity has never met before. They then leave to go back to England --- or so Felicity believes. All through the rest of that summer, there is little word from Winnie and Danny. No mail for Felicity, only mysterious letters for Danny's brother Gideon, bearing postmarks from Portugal. Gideon won't let Felicity see the letters, so she takes matters into her own hands, uncovering surprising information about Danny and Winnie along the way.
These aren't the only family secrets Felicity discovers during her stay in Maine. Her American relatives are unusual, even if America isn't quite the wild frontier she had always imagined. Uncle Gideon is both goofy and sad, holding secrets and bearing grudges that Felicity doesn't understand. Her Aunt Miami adores Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and dreams of a life on the stage, even though she's terrified when that opportunity finally arises. And then there's the unseen recluse Captain Derek, yet another mystery for Felicity to figure out. At first, she's not sure about these new American relatives, especially when they give her a nickname (Flissy) and seem reluctant to answer so many of her questions.Read more ›
Flissy has found herself unceremoniously dumped. One minute she is living happily in her flat in England with her parents Winnie and Danny (though she doesn't much care for the bombing going on outside). Next thing she knows they've managed to hitch a ride on a ship bound for America and she is left in the care of an unmarried uncle, an unmarried aunt, and a grandmother, none of whom she has ever met before. Her initial homesickness and loneliness are partly appeased when she starts uncovering the secrets lurking in the house.Read more ›
