Amy Masterson has come to Sugar Plum lane to basically start the next phase of her life, her marriage is over, and her mother has died. She is continuing to search for her mothers family, also. When she learns Eleanor Rucker, Amy's great-grandmother, at one time owned the house she rents and still lives on the same street, she is hoping she can uncover what her mother never learned. There are some problems with her search, Eleanor's mind is not as sharp as it used to be, her memories are not as clear, she has no idea who Amy and her daughter are. Amy is to say the least, heartbroken, but knows the bonds of family can never be fully broken, she clings to her hope that the fog will lift long enough for Eleanor to get to know her and her daughter.

The power of hope and family ties is a wonderful to read in The House On Sugar Plum Lane. The strength of Amy's hope and faith is a force to reckon with. There were heart wrenching and the most beautiful heart warming scenes. The characters will stay with the reader and the heart long after the last page is turned.
