Road to Tater Hill by Edith M. Hemingway

Road to Tater Hill
by Edith M. Hemingway
Jr. Fiction

Annabel (also known as Annie) and her mother are staying with her grandparents while her dad is has to go to Japan for two months in the military. During that time, Annie’s sister Mary Kate dies a day after she is born. Annie’s mother goes into depression and her grandparents have to take care of her during this time. Annie is sad and confused feeling that she not only lost her baby sister but her mother too. She sees a lady one day in the woods that supposedly killed her husband. After seeing some local boys making fun of the woman one day, Annie befriends her which helps her take her mind off of her baby sister and mom. This is a beautiful story about loss, healing, love and friendship. I enjoyed every minute of the story.
