It is 1932. Polly and her older sister, Maud, travel by train and boat from Winnipeg to an island between Vancouver and Victoria. Polly will live with their grandmother, the sisters'' new guardian, and attend the small school on the island, while Maud will go to boarding school in Victoria.

Their extended family welcomes the girls warmly. New-school jitters give way to new friendships and even a new puppy, and slowly Polly feels that she is becoming part of a larger family she never knew until now.

But Polly and Maud have a dramatic secret, and they have promised each other never to tell anyone. A surprise arrival on the island, however, threatens Polly''s newfound happiness and tests the bonds of family love. Can Polly keep the secret and her new life on the island?

About the Author

"In true Kit Pearson fashion, this book delivers a thoughtful and intricate tale of family and fortitude as Polly learns to stand on her own and to bravely face a number of painfultruths. . . . Her keenly felt sense of betrayal by Maud and Noni and the others is sensitively handled and so perfectly in tune with the mind and heart of a child." CANADIAN CHILDREN'S BOOK NEWS "Pearson offers lively characters and a rich depiction of life on the island, her prose echoing the quaint sensibilities of the novel's 1930s setting. . . . Although the novel seems aimed at a younger teen readership, the hard-earned but simple lesson Polly learns is of value to readers of any age: people are complex; they can and do change." QUILL & QUIRE
