Who says children’s novels are just for kids?? Elizabeth Somers is an 11 year old orphan girl who finds herself locked out of her home and shipped off for Christmas break by her vicious aunt and uncle. But instead of a lonely trip to the middle of nowhere, Elizabeth finds herself at the awe inspiring resort, Winterhouse. What unfolds is a beautiful story full of magic, puzzle mysteries, enduring friendship, and the power of good. Accompanying Guterson’s compelling writing are illustrations by Chloe Bristol, which only adds to the story’s magic.
My 11 year old daughter and I read this book together, and I highly recommend it as a great family read.
