“Since forever it seems, Maple has listened to Mamma sing a lullaby about the Wise Woman who has the power to grant wishes. When Lily, Maples tiny, sickly baby sister is born too early, Maple knows what she must do. In need of a miracle, she and her older sister Dawn venture off to seek the Wise Woman's magic on a journey that is filled with danger and discovery, frustration, and hope. A riveting story of a close-knit, loving family and the real source of miracles.”
— Christopher Rose, Andover Bookstore, Andover, MA

Description


A beautiful debut novel for fans of The Penderwicks

Big things are about to happen at Maple's house. Mama's going to have a baby, which means now there will be four Rittle sisters instead of just three. But when baby Lily is born too early and can't come home from the hospital, Maple knows it's up to her to save her sister. So she and sister Dawn, armed with a map and some leftover dinner, head off down a river and up a mountain to find the Wise Woman, who guards a pool with miraculous powers. But the dangers Maple and Dawn encounter on their journey make them realize a thing or two about miracles--and about each other.
