When Sarah Draycott moves to a small town on the coast of Maine following her divorce, she is drawn into the lives, joys, and heartaches of her neighbors. She helps a widow deal with her child's illness. And she helps nine-year-old Oliver%E2%80%94who is taken into custody by an uncle he's never met%E2%80%94discover the truth about the deteriorating mansion where he now lives. Kirsten Potter's slow, smooth narration fits Cannell's novel. And while the book contains emotional scenes, mystery, and suspense, it's written in a low-key tone%E2%80%94and Potter matches it perfectly, while also giving the characters (both young and old) recognizable and appropriate voices. A Severn House paperback. (Apr.)
