Inside Front Cover:

Elsie McPhee and her younger brother, Tommy, live furtively with their mother, who teachers them at home and constantly warns that they are not to talk to strangers, or even neighbors. It is an isolated and lonely life for Elsie, and when she finally dares to ignore her mother’s rules and make a friend, the family is suddenly on the the move again, to another dreary furnished apartment in a different state. 

This latest upheaval prompts Elsie to begin to remember the time, four years ago, when her mother kidnapped her and Tommy, stealing them away from her father. When a possibly dangerous situation looms in the present, Elsie must find the courage to make a decision that could drastically change the lives of everyone in her family.
