Deep in the woods there used to be a house where a family once lived. Over there was the chimney. Just imagine little toes warming up beside it. And see those daffodils? Someone took special care to plant and tend to them so that every spring they blossomed as brightly as the year before.

Both the house and the family are gone now, but if you go to that spot in the woods, you'll find the chimney and the flowers. Then all you have to do is close your eyes and imagine...With Crescent Dragonwagon's poetic text and Jerry Pinkney's rich watercolors, past and present briefly touch in this remarkable book.

While out hiking, a family comes upon the site of an old house and finds some clues about the people that once lived there.
