It's summertime in Maine, and 12-year-old Evie is ready to spend her vacation combing the seashore with her younger brothers at their grandmother's bed-and-breakfast. But instead, Evie discovers a secret cave along the rocky coast...and a mysterious wall, where paintings appear and vanish without warning. Uncovering the cave's mystery brings other memories to the surface: memories of her deceased mother and absent father--memories Evie has tried to suppress. A moving, evocative mystery, depicting a slice of life with vitality and warmth.
