When fifteen-year-old Emily Dickinson meets a mysterious, hand--some young man who doesn't seem to know who she or her family is and playfully refuses to divulge his name, she's intrigued. She enjoys her secret flirtation with "Mr. Nobody"--until he turns up dead in her family's pond. She's stricken with guilt and is deter--mined to discover who this enigmatic stranger was before he's buried in an anonymous grave, an investigation that takes her deep into town secrets, blossoming romance, and deadly danger. A celebration of Emily Dickinson's intellect and spunk, this exqui--sitely written and meticulously researched page-turner will excite fans of mystery, romance and poetry alike.
