Summary:
Far and near. Lost and found. Four girls. Four generations. Georgia cannot figure out what's going on in her family. Her mother, Francie, is extremely overprotective. Her grandmother, Dana, and her great-grandmother, Abby, don't speak to each other. And Georgia's great-great-grandmother also had some secrets that nobody else knows about. Georgia knows this because she's found her great-great grandmother's diary hidden in a wall in the family's house in Maine. Reading the diary makes her think of her own struggles - and draws her even closer to the mysteries of her family as Abby's hundredth birthday approaches.

Summary

Summary

Four girls. Four generations. One family. The fourth installment of the exquisite series from Ann M. Martin.

In this poignant conclusion to Ann M. Martin's beautiful quartet of Family Tree novels, the focus is on Georgia, the great-granddaughter of Abby Nichols whom we met in Book One.

Georgia, like her mother and grandmother before her, takes pride in her family's history. She does her best to navigate its many members, reflect on the lives lived, and unearth secrets that haven't been shared, all while growing up in the turbulent 21st century.

A must-read for fans of this series!
