Twelve in 1937, Addie lives in a dark old New Orleans house with two maiden aunts who are prematurely preoccupied with the family burial plot and dedicated to the memory of their younger sister Pasie, Addie's mother, a beautiful artist who perished in a hurricane when the child was five. Now Addle determines to find out what her mother was really like, and as she sneaks and pries and wrangles, she encounters gaps and inconsistencies in what she's been told.

This story about a young girl named Addie I actually read as a kid and just re-read recently. It took me forever to finally remember the title and author with the help of the web and people willing to answer questions. :) I really enjoy this story. It's very realistic to how a young girl would act I think in regards to secrets being kept from her.

It's about a girl whose parents have both died when she was young, and she doesn't have many memories of them. She lives with her two aunts, has a cousin she doesn't get along with well, and sets off to find out the truth about her mother. I give this story a thumbs up.

My 11 year old daughter and I both loved this book. There was mystery, conflict, yearning, coming of age, and a boy. Addie is the instantly lovable heroine of this story - she has to deal with a nasty cousin and navigate life with two well-meaning but old-fashioned (and old) aunts, while trying to unravel some of her mother's history. For adult readers, this book captures a fascinating period of New Orleans history, illustrating Catholic rituals and superstitions I've never heard of. For children, the longings and struggles of Addie are so endearing. My daughter was equally interested in both the quest to discover the truth about her mother and the trials of navigating friendships with the eccentric daughter of their cook and the mean-girl cousin.
