The Sojourner Chronicles
"My heart skipped another beat. A staircase. I knew those narrow stairs led to the attic..."
It’s 1943, and young Sara Grace LeBeau is sent across town to live with a great-aunt she’s never met, while her father, a Detroit Free Press reporter, covers World War II in Europe.
Her mother has died, and Great-Aunt Blanche makes it clear from the beginning that Sara Grace is unwanted. Sad and lonely, but curious about her temporary home, she discovers the woman’s
creepy old place with its mysterious attic footsteps, puttied over keyholes, and a hidden staircase, harbors a secret buried deep in the older woman’s southern roots.
