In the summer of 1963, after his father has inexplicably disappeared leaving Cully with his three eccentric aunts on their barely profitable apple farm, Cully goes to work for a mysterious antiques dealer who has the strange hobby of collecting shadows.
Another good read for both boys and girls, from Amy Gordon. A bit of mystery rolled in with suspense and history. Some of it is a bit far-fetched for me, but not for kids. They will enjoy this one as a Mark Twain nominee.
