The sixth book in Cynthia Voigt’s acclaimed Tillerman Series, about Dicey Tillerman and her family, where Dicey’s brothers Sam and James hunt for their father.
Six years have passed since James and Sammy Tillerman came with their sisters Dicey and Maybeth to live with their grandmother. They have grown up as very different individuals – James, the shy intellectual dreamer at 15, and Sammy, 12, the handsome, boisterous doer of the family. James begins to ask questions about their father. Who was he? Why did he leave? He and Sammy begin a quest to track their father down, through the streets of Annapolis and among the seedy dockside bars of Baltimore, and learn more about themselves in consequence.
A strong, emotional story about young adults discovering who they are and what they are capable of. It builds on characters already loved and admired from the first book in the Tillerman series, Homecoming.
