"Mrs. Miflin's boarding house on Bishop's Road was a convent until the Sisters of Joy dried up suddenly and blew away. It is large with many rooms, not accustomed to noise or quick movement though it is quite familiar with haunted dreams. Eve has been alive since God was a youngster. Maggie doesn't speak and hasn't a clue how she got here. Ruth is tired of living. Sits all day at a third-floor window. Watching. Ginny Mustard spends much of her time walking the waterfront. Looking for music. Judy is the most recent arrival and with her comes a wonderful disturbance. It hitched a ride in her pocket and finding the inhabitants of Mrs. Miflin's house needing a little more than they had bargained for, has decided to stay awhile. With ther moon's blessing it creeps under doors and through closets leaving smudges of itself on shirts and underwear, photographs and letters. It goes to the attic for a quick look around before sliding under a pillow to nap." - from front flap.
