It’s going to be a brilliant summer for Dorothy—but suddenly, the sun hides behind the clouds and a secret she couldn’t have imagined appears . . .
While on a class trip to a museum, fourteen-year-old Dorothy Coughlin can’t believe her luck: She practically falls into a summer job as a nanny for a wealthy family in Pennsylvania, in the biggest house she has ever seen. It doesn’t even matter that she’s not experienced with children, or that the family is a little strange. She’ll be paid $400 for the summer—money she can use for college. But her employer, Mrs. Hoade, is awkward and anxious. Is she hiding something? Sweet and harmless Mr. Hoade, on the other hand—with his movie-star looks—has a strange personality. And when Dorothy discovers the secret one of the Hoades is hiding in the guest cottage, everything changes. This summer could change the course of her life, that is, if she survives! This ebook features an illustrated biography of Rosemary Wells including rare images from the author’s collection.
