Description

Emily Benedict has come to Mullaby, North Carolina hoping to solve at least some of the riddles surrounding her mother's life. But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew, she senses that mysteries aren't solved in Mullaby -- they're a way of life. There's wallpaper that changes to suit your mood, lights skipping across the yard at midnight, and a neighbor, Julia Winterson, who bakes hope in her cakes. Can a hummingbird cake bring back a lost love; Is there a ghost dancing in Emily's backyard; The answers are never what you might expect in Mullaby. But in this town of lovable misfits, the unexpected fits right in.
