A Depression-era family appropriates a summer cottage in the Wisconsin woods, where they spend the winter and welcome all visitors, including a runaway youth and two strangers.

A delightful little tale set during the Depression about an improvident father and his two daughters who, en route to stay with a reluctant relative, end up spending the winter in an empty summer cottage and taking in a runaway boy. This story isn't as well known as the author's "Caddie Woodlawn", and yet, I think I preferred this one. A warm story about determination, and how we all depend upon others for different reasons, this was a wonderful book. Just seeing how each character needed the others was heartwarming enough. Everything was beautifully described, especially passages that dwelt on the changing seasons and scenery. Lovely.
