About this title


Would you want to read a letter written to you by your mother six years ago? Even if your mother had died when you were only six years old? If she had left you "Snob Hill," a two-hundred-year-old farm in the Adirondacks which you both hate and love? And even if everyone only speaks of how perfect she was, never how she really was? Twelve-year-old Dilly Howell isn't so sure she wants to read that letter. What if it only makes her resent her mother more? But with the help of her father, her friends, and the memories uncovered during a summer at Snob Hill, Dilly discovers that her mother was someone that she still loves very much.

With her "trademark combination of humor and compassion,"* Sally Warner shares a heartwarming love story between mother and daughter.
