"As a child, Maggie Faraday grew up in a lively, unconventional household with her young mother, four very different aunts, and eccentric grandfather. With her mother often away, her aunts took turns looking after her until, just weeks before Maggie s sixth birthday, a shocking event changed everything. Twenty years later, Maggie is living alone in New York City when she receives a surprise visit from her grandfather Leo, who brings a revelation and a proposition: He s preparing a special gift for his daughters and needs Maggie s help. When the Faradays gather from all parts of the world to celebrate Christmas in July a longstanding tradition Maggie uncovers unexpected family history and learns that the women she thought she knew so intimately all have something to hide."--Barnesandnoble.com.
