(From the publisher):
After tragedy tears her family apart, Jordan March is shipped off by her domineering Grandmother Emma to live with Emma's long-forgotten sister. Shuttered in a rundown farmhouse, shrouded in cobwebs and mystery, Aunt Frances is the strangest person Jordan has ever met. She talks in a baby voice, plays childish games, and dresses up in peculiar costumes. Why has Grandmother hidden away this fragile, harmless woman--did Frances grow up much too fast, like Jordan did? Did her feminine curves attract all the wrong attention, like Jordan's? While caring for her elderly aunt and fixing up the house, Jordan can't help but wonder why Emma is threatened by both her and Frances. But in the shadows of the farmhouse, Jordan is about to unearth the shattering truth--and the March family will never be the same....
