Excellent, deep novel

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

I am so thrilled to see this in the SCM bookfinder. It is a gem of a book, my all time favorite, not to be missed. Several themes run through this book and it will be a treat to read. One particular thread is the value and love of a family. As most of the good older authors did, the story line is constructed really well. Books are just not written this well these days. There are a few humorous and memorable parts that I will not give away here. Lastly, the CM lover will enjoy how Gene Porter refers a lot to nature. She does this in all her books, but some more so than others. Her love of the outdoors is very obvious.

If using as a Read Aloud wait until your children are old enough to appreciate this. There is nothing upsetting, but the themes are so beautiful that it would be a pity to miss them.
