It starts with Abby.

It's 1930, and Abby Nichols can't imagine what her future holds. She lives with her quiet mother, her angry father, and her sometimes annoying, sometimes sweet sister, Rose, in a small town in Maine. One of her best friends is a boy named Orrin, whom her father doesn't want her talking to. She's known her other best friend, Sarah, forever, and doesn't think they'll ever be apart.

But Abby's world is changing fast. Soon there will be new siblings to take care of, a new house to move into, and new friends to meet. There will also be good-byes to say and hard choices to make.

In this incredible new series, bestselling author Ann M. Martin brings the past and the present together one girlhood at a time. The family story begins with Abby's, then continues in the next three Family Tree books, focusing on the lives of Abby's daughter, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter. The result is a remarkable look at four generations in one memorable family.
