The Secret Hum of a Daisy

We rated this book:


It had always been Grace and Mama, just the two of them, always on the move, never staying any place for long. Grace knows more about being the new kid at school than any kid should. By the time Grace is twelve, she really wants a home, a place to settle and have friends, not just acquaintances. And Grace thinks they have found the right place. Mrs. Green and Lacey are their whole family just like Grace and Mama. They rent a cottage from Mrs. Green, and Lacey and Grace become fast friends. Everything seems perfect, but Mama lets Grace know they will be moving again. Grace is mad and lets Mama know. The last words she speaks to Mama are angry ones. But Grace could not know they would be the last words. And now Mama is gone and a grandmother Grace had never known comes and takes her away, a grandmother who had sent Grace’s Mama away when she was very young. Can they ever become a family?

Tracy Holczer has crafted a story that will touch the hearts of everyone who reads it. The writing is lyrically beautiful and the characters engaging. Don’t miss this one.
