2014 - Newbery Honor
Set in Wisconsin in 1871, Georgie is busy helping her family's store, but the mystery of her older sister's engagement and possible love affair with another man draws her into a dangerous search when her sister disappears.
Vivid descriptions and fiercely independent, unique protagonist. This is a mystery with dark turns and well-crafted writing.
