Maeve is unnerved when she and her grandfather find a body in the bog in Ballywhinney,Ireland. It turns out to be the body of a young girl who lived more than athousand years ago. A girl like Maeve, with fair hair, who walked the same fields andpicked the same flowers. When archeologists display the mummy at a museum, Maevewonders: Does the girl mind being displayed in a glass case for all to see? Or does shemiss the green meadow where she had lain for so many hundreds of years?Two picture-book masters sensitively capture the layers of thought and feeling arisingin the face of an awe-inspiring and mysterious discovery.
