The secret bliss of Calliope Ipswich

McClure, Marcia Lynn
"A secret bliss was nestled deep inside Calliope Ipswich. It had been there from nearly the moment the Ipswich family arrived in Meadowlark Lake all those months past. And though it was a bliss she owned in knowing something about herself that even her own sisters did not know, it likewise brought her pain at times-for there were secrets in her heart that could never be revealed to anyone, not even to her own sisters. Calliope's love was already spoken for-and no one in all the wide world, save Calliope Ipswich herself, would ever know it. To keep her mind occupied, Calliope decided to plan an adorable Tom Thumb wedding to help the townsfolk move on from a tragedy the previous All Hallow's Eve. And she had the perfect bride in mind for her reenactment: her precocious six-year-old stepsister, Shay. Soon the whole town was involved in setting up the cutest little wedding they'd ever seen! And when it was over, Calliope wiped tears of happiness from her cheeks as she applauded the children's performance, yet she sighed with the disappointment one feels when something they've anticipated for so long comes to an end. Will Calliope's secret bliss ever blossom into a wedding of her own, or will it remain her secret forever?"--
