    1. Lovely winter read, written in 1939 describes how a family down on their luck shelter in a summer cottage during the hard months of winter. About hope, making friends and trusting people.

    2. Winter Cottage by Carol Ryrie Brink read January 2015Absolutely loved this little-known gem. Though Winter Cottage collects dust while its more famous sister, Caddie Woodlawn, gets all the fame, WC is an excellent book in its own right and it's a shame that it is out-of-print. My library still has a copy in circulation, thank goodness, and if you can get your hands on a copy I urge you to read it without delay before libraries start discarding them. As with Brink's other works, the characters in [...]

    3. Little did I know when I first read and fell in love with this book that one day I too would be entering sweepstakes (and winning).The charm of this family - the enterprising father and the two daughters who yearn for a settled home - makes you root for them and crave just a taste of Pa's famous pancakes.

    4. Just came across this one again - wow, does it bring back memories! My Dad must have read this to us half a dozen times, we loved it so much. I remember the kids entering contests (which they found on the backs of tin cans and flour sacks)in order to try to earn money to pay the rent (on the empty cottage they occupied). If I remember right, the Dad used to make pancakes he called "golwallopers" and "whales". Absolutely loved this as a kid.

    5. The family is down and out in the winter of 1932. While on the way to horrible Aunt Amy's in Minneapolis, the car breaks down and the Sparkes family are forced to stop in the snowy woods on Wisconsin. They find an empty summer cottage and move in to spend the winter. Pops is sure his ship will come in soon and he'll be able to leave rent at the end of the winter. Thirteen-year-old Minty isn't so sure. She's the practical one of the family while her father, a poet, and sister "Eggs" are dreamers. [...]

    6. This is fabulous. Warm, detailed, and tiptoeing on the edge of timelessness. Even the part that could read as dated - the visit to the nearby reservation - is elevated by the nuanced acknowledgement of the missionaries on site. I really like stories about capable children accommodating for their less-worldly parents (much more realistic than absent parents!) and poetry-quoting Pop is hilarious.Also, this is Excellent Example of Inflation #1 of the books I read today. Next up: The Saturdays.

    7. Araminta and Eglantine (Minty and Eggs) Sparkes, are reluctantly moving with their unemployed father to live with their deceased mother's sister as the Great Depression begins. Their luck seems to be against them as they take a wrong turn onto a remote country road and their car breaks down. The sisters go exploring while their father attempts to find out what is wrong. They find an abandoned cottage and enter through an unsecured window. Little do they know that they are about to embark on an a [...]

    8. I read this one aloud to my kids. We all really enjoyed it (and I enjoyed doing voices for each character, especially Eggs), but I had trouble getting past just how nice everyone is and how well everything works out. Things work out a little too perfectly and the characters forgive just a little too easily to be realistic, I think. Or maybe I'm just in a crappy mood. Luckily, based on the lessons from this book, I know it's nothing a batch of pancakes won't fix.

    9. Thanks again for a great recommendation, Constance! How I would have loved this as a child, because I loved it now!During the depression a down-on-their-luck family "rents" the summer cottage that their car breaks down next to for the winter.Small caveat: this verges on my most hated of children's genres - the kids are smarter than the adults and take care of the adults - but it didn't cross my line, quite.

    10. So glad I heard about this through the Betsy-Tacy list. It has some of the same "homemaking" charm as another favorite, Dandelion Cottage, the coziness of winter, and a fun twist at the end.

    11. My daughter read this book last week and she loved it. She went on to read Baby Island and when I searched for other titles by Brink, I remembered how much I loved so many of them. Unfortunately, our library does not have all of them -- so I wanted to add the titles to my list of books because I loved them so much and books can disappear so easily.

    12. This young adult book was written in 1939 and is set during the depression. A homeless widower and his children are traveling to stay with his unwelcoming sister when their car breaks down on a back road. The family takes shelter in a summer cottage for the night and ends up spending the winter. A good story exquisitely told.

    13. This was a dear story - a children's book actually but I found it a delightful change of pace. The illustrations were well done as well. Minty is wiser than her sixteen years and is the mother figure for her younger sister, and handles Pop, who is a bit of a dreamer, quite well.

    14. I suspect I would have adored this as a child, and had fond memories re-reading it later as an adult. As it is, I can only rate it according to my adult standards. A solid 3 stars for the story, and 4 stars for the cute vintage illustrations.

    15. “What a lot of fun you could have if you made unimportant things seem important and went about them with enthusiasm.” ― Carol Ryrie Brink, Winter Cottage

    16. First sentence: The Vincents' summer cottage in northern Wisconsin had been empty for two months. Favorite quote: "I thought that no one could ever be nicer than the Marcia Vincent in the picture, but I was wrong. I liked the real one better.This story was so captivating, warm and loving. The cast of characters were such fun. There was Pops, Araminta although everyone called her Minty, Eglantine who went by Eggs and Buster the dog. Later in the story along came Joe Boles. The author is well know [...]

    17. Another find among the older juvenile books. Takes place during the Depression when a father and his 2 daughters, down on their luck, are stranded in northern Wisconsin near a closed up summer cottage. They decide to stay in the cottage for the winter, and the oldest daughter (the only practical member of the family) is left trying to find a way to pay rent to the unknown owners. I thought the book had a slow start. But, over time, I grew fond of the characters and found the ending, though not s [...]

    18. Great, sweet story.I miss stories like this. Those who like the original Boxcar Children would probably enjoy this too.For those that homeschool, this story would be a good read-aloud to use with a poetry study, as Pop is always quoting bits of famous poetry.

    19. I LOVE this book. It's like the best story ever. It's a family favorite. We used to read it in the car on vacations. It's got such a great story, and this cool thing about pancakes. You have to read it. It's one of those warm fuzzy type stories. Yeah

    20. All time favorite family read aloud! If you live in where you experience winter, save it for a cold season and read with hot chocolate! It is very hard not to read the entire book in one sitting! Delicious!

    21. Very sweet. I knew what the "big surprise" was, but it was still kind of an innocent feel good book that didn't necessarily pull me in, but I know that if I had come across this in fourth grade I would have read and reread it over and over.

    22. Book is out of print, so I got ILL to see if it's worthy to purchase. Stay tuned.Setting is fall of 1930. I wanted to find some children's lit written about the last crises period we had in the US.*****Nice story, but not really what I was hoping for.

    23. Cute story. It's just funny to read stories about back then and they think nothing of living in a place with no electricity or plumbing.

    24. I read this book when I was in grade school and I Adore It, reread it several timesd I want to make the panacakes called Gogglewockers that they made.

    25. Suggested in a recent OCTE Journal as a book for children to read during hard times. Language and story a bit dated, but still engaging. Middle school level.
