A father's wounded heart. A mother's patient love. An eager boy, an impetuous girl, and above all the healing power of nature. When Marly's father comes back from the war a different man, the family moves to Grandma's old house on Maple Hill, where miracles begin to happen.
These are the classic ingredients that fill Virginia Sorensen's 1956 Newbery Award winning novel with a tender power and lift it to classic status.
