One of the things that I found interesting about reading the older newberry books is that you can see how the author dealt with serious issues within the timeline of that moment in history. For example, in this book it never completly comes out and says that the father in this book was suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome from WWII, but the signs are left everywhere for the reader to pick up on. I wish that that the author had developed more of the stories relationships with the adults in the book, but I have to remind myself that this book is written with children not adults in mind.
I gave the book a fourth star because I loved the air of nostalgia that the book left me with. The way she describes the winters on Maple Hill and especially the springs with the syrup left me wanting to linger at the syrup camps of that time and smell the sweet aroma of the sap cooking over a fire. This is a great book from a different time, that lets a little insight into the struggles of the post-WWII family and how they dealt with them.
