Small Bones

Front Cover
Orca Book Publishers, 2015 - Young Adult Fiction - 256 pages
Dot, whose name reflects her stature, has always had big dreams--but her dreams have to be put on hold while she searches for the truth about her parents. She gets a job as a seamstress at a lakeside resort in rural Ontario and falls hard for Eddie, a charming local boy who is equal parts helpful and distracting as Dot investigates her past. Searching for answers to questions about her birth, Dot learns more than she ever wanted to about the terrible effects of war, the legacy of deceit--and the enduring nature of love.

Part of the SECRETS--a series of seven linked novels that can be read in any order.
