164 страниц. 2011 год. My Dear Niece: It will please me to have you spend the months of July and August as my guest at Elmhurst. I am in miserable health, and wish to become better acquainted with you before I die. A check for necessary expenses is enclosed and I shall expect you to arrive promptly on the first of July. Your Aunt, JANE MERRICK The imposing - in every sense of the word - Jane Merrick has summoned her three nieces, Patsy, Elizabeth, and Louise to her grand home, Elmhurst. But for exactly what purpose? This wonderfully satisfying tale of family dynamics, wealth, intrigue, deception, and character comes from the pen of an author better known for fairytales, magic lands and, of course, wizards. For the wizard behind Aunt Janea??s Nieces is none other than L. Frank Baum, author of the classic Oz series!
