Read full description of the books:
I enjoyed this story set in Ohio during the Depression about a girl who lives in a house with an undiscovered secret. Although her older brother is a troublemaker who is (annoyingly) never punished by their parents, Kate finds an ally in a visiting neighbor. Kate, with a broken arm, and Oscar, with a broken ankle, are surprisingly mobile as they explore countryside, caves and everything in between. The sobering aspects of the Depression are never far away but Mrs. Cummings never hesitates to feed a deserving hobo even though money is very scarce at home and she is about to give birth to a fifth child.

Mrs. Jacob attended school and college in Ohio, and was a school and college librarian much of her life. She and her husband lived in the Washington, DC area.
