eer's life is falling apart. Her father, the son of a wealthy and proper Boston family, enlists in World War I, only to return disfigured in body and soul. He moves to the boathouse of their Maine property and refuses to see anyone. Clothilde's mother, too, is changing in dark and unsettling ways. She fires Lou, the family servant and Clothilde's only friend. Miserable, confused, adrift, Clothilde wanders deep into the Maine woods, where she hears a Voice, a Voice that can grant all her wishes -- but at a very dear price.From Publishers Weekly:
"Set on the New England coast in the summer of 1920, this beautifully written novel traces the course of a few eventful days in Clothilde Speer's life. The author has woven together her themes of love, war and loss, and it is miraculously convincing and moving," said PW. Ages 9-13. (May)
