Über diesen Titel


Orphaned by her mother's death, Edith goes to live with her older sister and her dour husband in their stern Christian farming household, where the strain of adjusting seems to aggravate her epileptic seizures.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6 After the death of their widowed mother, Edith's older brothers and sister decide that they can manage the farm themselves. But Edith, the youngest, makes her home with her married sister, Alena; her husband, John; Vernon, their son; and baby Lettie. Soon the household is disrupted by Edith's ``fits.'' Edith must come to terms with her problem and her new life. Set in the 1890s before epilepsy was controlled and understood, this story is told warmly and well. It provides what so many current stories that deal with disability fail to providea focus on the child rather than the disability. Edith comes to terms, not with her disability, but rather with her new life and her own maturing, of which the disability is only a part. The other characters provide a realistic view of people struggling to deal with a disability, all in their own way. Overprotective Alena is balanced by John's practicality. Vernon is rather proud of Edith's fits, and while some children taunt her, others defend her. The religiosity of the grandmother, who blames Edith's seizures on her ``laying up of treasures,'' provides another realistic dimension to this story. Beautifully written, this is a tale to take its place beside those of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Constance A. Mellon, Department of Library & Information Studies, East Carolina University, Greenville, N.C.

Mail order dealer since 1986. I have about 95,000 books listed with ABE. Formerly I issued catalogs, primarily under three headings: Natural History; Travel, Exploration & Sporting; and Americana & the West. My mailing lists, however, were very small and specialized so I am enjoying the much larger audience that the Internet provides. Also, I have greatly expanded my holdings so they are no longer restricted to the three areas above.
