I am looking for a book I read as a kid in the late 80s-early 90s. It was aimed at younger readers, maybe age 6-10.
It was about a little girl who always wore a collar/necklace/choker/ribbon around her neck. People always asked why she wore it and she never answered. She met a boy as a teenager, eventually married him and had kids, and grew old with him. All througout their life she never took it off and never said why she wore it. On her deathbed, she said she had a secret and took the choker off. When she took it off, her head fell off.
What book is this??? I am not finding anything in my searches and want my son to have this book!
