The day was ended-quite successfully, so far as she knew.

Ninety-seven squirming little orphans must bescrubbed and combed and buttoned into freshly starched ginghams; andall ninety-seven reminded of their manners, and told to say, 'Yes,sir,' 'No, sir,' whenever a Trustee spoke. The day was ended-quite successfully, so far as she knew.

After my little sister died in 1967, a thoughtful family friend gave me this book. I have read it many times since then, even as an adult. The storyline of a family who accepts a foster child after their son dies (leaving the twin sister to adjust) really resonated with me. I hope others will realize the beautiful sensitivity of this story and pass this book along to children and families who are adjusting to life after the death of a child. Its message really healed me.

Jenny's younger brother was killed in a car accident, and Jenny has to come to grips with the fact that is gone. The car that had killed Michael, had thrown Jenny and her friend into the snowbank. Her mother and younger brothers were injured, but Michael was the only one who actually succumbed to his injuries.
Mr. and Mrs. McGregor went to the Adoption Center to adopt two younger children, one who was around Jenny's Age, and then one who was a little bit younger. Their names were Hilda and Michael Jackson. Ironically, Jenny's brother name was Michael, and she was a little bit touchy with the fact that he was able to get the use of all of Michael's stuff, and then the fact that the dog took an immediate liking to him, whereas the liking to her from the dog was not there!
If you would like to see how Hilda, Jenny, Michael, Malcolm and Alex interact with each other, please read the book Home From Far, and it won't be disappointing!

I think that this book was bad. I read it and it was not interesting at all.

I read this book about 50 years ago and it so impressed me that I remembered the title and most of the plot. The heroine is struggling with the death of her twin brother and has difficulty understanding some of the decisions that her parents make in attempting to move forward. One of my favorite books as an older child, I was fascinated and horrified at the possibility of accidental death of a family member. One of my uncles was killed in an accident around this time and I believe that I was coming to terms with the reality of death. This book is written for adolescents but I remember clearly that the author does not write down to her readers. The characters were believable, the thoughts and behaviors of the young girl were understandable, and the subject of the ways that different people cope with grief and loss was handled very well.
