The Robe Walk
By Carrie Brown
Once again, Carrie Brown has crafted a beautiful novel with language that transports you into the story. This time, it's a summer in rural Vermont.
Alice just turned 10 years old. Her five older brothers are leaving home, and she is feeling the loss with the prospect of just her and her father at home. Two people come into her life during her 10th summer, and the relationship between them brings her realizations that are far beyond her years.
This book is about childhood, friendship and devotion, and growing up -- without television and computers.
This book and many others are available in both Spanish and English as well as book and audio form at the De Soto branch of the Johnson County Library.
