This is a must-read for families with grade school-aged children. I have several people stop by the gallery every summer who have come to Pownal with their children to seek out the locations mentioned in Elizabeth Winthrop’s well-researched novel. The back story, once discovered, is almost as interesting as the novel, although perhaps the outcome was not so good for young Addie. Read more about that on my blog post of 5/31/11. BUY ME!
