Felicity Pickle's mother has a wandering heart.  Felicity has never lived in the same place more than a few months and longs for a place to call home.  When the Pickles arrive at an aunt's house in Midnight Gulch, Felicity finds a best friend and a real home.  Legend says that Midnight Gulch used to be filled with magic, and Felicity soon discovers that a snicker of that magic still exists. Will it be enough to cure Felicity's mother's yearning to leave?  Lloyd has created a endearing heroine and whole town of interesting lovable characters. This is a wonderful feel-good book for either boys or girls that celebrates the wonder of words and the power of love.
