"IT'S STILL TRUE."
That's the first thing James Tillerman says to his sister Dicey every
morning. It's still true that their mother has abandoned the four
Tillerman children somewhere in the middle of Connecticut. It's still true
they have to find their way, somehow, to Great-aunt Cilla's house in
Bridgeport, which may be their only hope of staying together as a family.
But when they get to Bridgeport, they learn that Great-aunt Cilla has
died, and the home they find with her daughter, Eunice, isn't the
permanent haven they've been searching for. So their journey continues to
its unexpected conclusion -- and some surprising discoveries about their
history, and their future.
