About the book:
A young girl discovers the true meaning of family and home in this heartbreaking debut.
Twelve-year-old Grace and her mother have always been their own family, traveling from place to place like gypsies. But Grace wants to finally have a home all their own. She thinks she’s found it with Mrs. Greene and her daughter Lacey so when her mother says it’s time to move on again, Grace summons the courage to tell her mother how she really feels. She’ll always regret that her last words to her were angry ones.
Now faced with making a home with a grandmother she’s never met—and according to her mother, didn’t want her in the first place—Grace is desperate to get back to Mrs. Greene and Lacey. A mysterious treasure hunt, just like the ones her mother used to send her on, may just be the key. It all begins with a crane. And Grace is sure it’s her mother showing her the way home.
The Secret Hum of a Daisy is published by G.P. Putnam’s Sons/Penguin.
Tracy Holczer lives in Southern California with her husband, three daughters, and two rather fluffy dogs named Buster and Molly. She has a deep love for the mountains where she grew up so she writes them into her stories. THE SECRET HUM OF A DAISY was written in praise of both nature and family, and all that can be found if you’re willing to hunt for treasure.
