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. HOME IS THE PLACE is the heartfelt, remarkable conclusion to Ann M. Martin’s Family Tree series, which has followed Abby, Dana, Francie, and now Georgia from girlhood to womanhood, showing readers the intertwining, extraordinary ways we grow up.
