Unbroken

Unbroken

by Jessie Haas
In a novel set in 1910 Vermont, 13-year-old Harriet (Harry) has lived contentedly alone with her mother, but their life together is shattered when her mother is killed in a horse and buggy accident. Harry is horrified to learn that she will be sent to live with Aunt Sarah. The quiet novel moves quickly and is enriched by genuine dialogue, realistic portrayals of grief, and careful observations in the first-person narrative.
