What a lovely story!! I think Charlotte Vale Allen has become another of my favourite authors.
From back cover:
"For twenty-seven years, since the death of her movie star mother, Lucinda Hunter has been a virtual recluse. It sometimes takes her days to summon the courage to venture past her front door. Then, one July morning, a motion in the garden catches her eye. Looking out, she sees a little girl admiring the overgrown flower beds. She can't be real, Lucinda thinks. But the girl beckons to her and, bemused, curious, Lucinda goes outdoors to make the acquaintance of nine year old Katanya Taylor who, courtesty of the 'Fresh Air Fund', has come to spend two weeks in Connecticut. Taken with the girl's sweet nature, intelligence and generosity, Lucinda finds herself gradually, painfully drawn back into the world."

Read information about the authorCharlotte Vale-Allen was born in Toronto and lived in England from 1961 to 1964 where she worked as a television actress and singer. She returned to Toronto briefly, performing as a singer and in cabaret revues until she emigrated to the United States in 1966.
Shortly after her marriage to Walter Allen in 1970 she began writing and sold her first novel Love Life in 1974. Prior to this book's publication she contracted to do a series of paperback originals for Warner Books, with the result that in 1976 three of her books appeared in print.
Her autobiography, the acclaimed Daddy's Girl, was actually the first book she wrote but in 1971 it was deemed too controversial by the editors who read it. It wasn't until 1980, after she'd gained success as a novelist, that the groundbreaking book was finally published.
One of Canada's most successful novelists, with over seven million copies sold of her 30+ novels, Ms. Allen's books have been published in all English-speaking countries, in Braille, and have been translated into more than 20 languages.
In her writing she tries to deal with issues confronting women, being informative while at the same time offering a measure of optimism. "My strongest ability as a writer is to make women real, to take you inside their heads and let you know how they feel, and to make you care about them."
A film buff and an amateur photographer, Allen enjoys foreign travel. She finds cooking and needlework therapeutic, and is a compulsive player of computer Solitaire. The mother of an adult daughter, since 1970 she has made her home in Connecticut.
