About This Book
A Powerful Story About Sisterhood, Survival, and Love!
Combining a heartfelt family story with a page-turning adventure, this novel follows two girls who will do anything to save their newborn sister!
Maple's baby sister, Lily, was born too early, and doctors aren't sure if she'll survive. But Maple remembers a folktale about the Wise Woman of the Mountains, a legendary character who stands guard over a magical pool with miraculous powers. Maple and her older sister, Dawn, decide to run away into the Vermont woods to find the Wise Woman — and the miracle that will save their sister! Their quest takes them down a treacherous river and through the dark woods, where they come face to face with a black bear, poachers, and other dangers!
