A Drowned Maiden's HairA Drowned Maiden's Hair by Laura Amy Schlitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a charming melodrama with an orphan, an old manor, spiritualists, maiden aunties ranging from sweetly ineffectual to cloyingly evil, a secret, and a hefty dose of Victorian bathing costumes and brisk sea air. This YA-middle school book manages to tackle some big questions about integrity, spirituality, and the need to belong. Audio version well done.
