{my thoughts} - This is only the second book in the series. But it is heartfelt, it is about trial and error in attempting to gain the love and upstanding of a relative that otherwise would not want you in their lives. It touches your heart when you read about Dicey finally seeing her mother again and having to accept that there is nothing left of her. It is sad when she dies but it's alright to because it allows for the children to move on with their lives without having to worry about where their mother is or isn't - after all she wasn't in her right mind considering that she just left them abandoned in a car ---- It's a wonderful book, worth reading and it helps to teach others that where there is determination there is a way and it doesn't hurt to result to old fashion hard labor in order to attempt to get things done.… (altro)

{my thoughts} - This book is a classic. It is about the determination of a young girl to keep what is left of her family together in one place. It is important to her not to lose anymore of the family that she has left even if that includes letting other not so pleasant family members into their lives. The hurt the four children are left with from the disappearance of their mother only makes the four of them stronger. It is a really good read and I am sure anyone that likes a good adventure will enjoy this book.… (altro)
