About the Book

Newly orphaned Jenny travels from China to live with a grandfather she has never met only to be condemned to a dark cellar room and a cruel servant's life. Why?

"Guaranteed chills and thrills," says Horn Book of Ghosts in the Gallery, nominated by Mystery Writers of America for its EDGAR Award.

"Descriptions draw the reader a picture of time and place and atmosphere that is nearly perfect. Sure to be a hit," says School Library Journal.

Washington Parent calls this book a "real page turner."

About the Author

Barbara Brooks Wallace, born in China of American parents, had crossed the Pacific Ocean nine times before returning finally to live in the United States. Their first stop was always San Francisco, so that city has forever remained a mystical, magical place for her. It?s not surprising that it one day became the setting for her Peppermints in the Parlor, forerunner of four Mystery Writers of America EDGAR nominated books, and two EDGAR winners.
