21Day 9: What Book Left You Feeling Peace

Title: The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy
Author: Jeanne Birdsall
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers
Publication Date:June 14, 2015
Page Number: 262 pgs.

Description from Goodreads:

“The Penderwick sisters busily discover the summertime magic of Arundel estate’s sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. Best of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel’s owner, the perfect companion for their adventures. Icy-hearted Mrs. Tifton is less pleased with the Penderwicks than Jeffrey, and warns the new friends to stay out of trouble. Is that any fun? For sure the summer will be unforgettable.”

Thoughts: I really enjoyed this story filled with the adventures of the Penderwick sisters and although they get to heaps of trouble, the story itself is a “quiet story” with beautiful language and a setting that is fully realized and one I wouldn’t mind stepping foot into during the long days of summer.
