Oh, I have no idea. I can't even guess. It sounds like a good book.

Tea, don't guess. Google. A synopsis of the book will give you the answer. The goal is to learn more. You don't have to know the answers beforehand.

It is a good book about family. I'm close with my siblings so I really enjoyed this.

Sassafrass is the oldest and a poet and a weaver. Cypress is a danger. Indigo, the youngest, lives in poetry, can talk to her dolls, and has a great gift of seeing the obvious magic of the world.

That was easy and fun.

Sassafrass, weaves tapestries

Cypres dances

Indigo plays violin and makes dolls

I would love this book.

Congratulations, Tea.

Rhapsody, you were so close.

Tea, if your library doesn't have this book, I will loan you ours. Let me know. Of course, you'd probably find it used. I get most of our books through trade and used. Like most non-profits, we are underfunded. Actually we're not funded at all.

Susan, thank you. I will let you know.
