This historical fiction book deals with Lavinia’s discovery of who she is during her twelfth year. Lavinia is a delightful character who shows us that the power of love is strong. Lavinia learns and teaches her family about love and forgiveness.
Lavinia’s Window is a beautifully written story of family life and values that provided enjoyable reading for me, my daughter and my 13-year granddaughter–offering wonderful reminders for the mature adult and lessons for the young.
This is a captivating novel for girls of all ages. I couldn’t put it down. It’s a book you will want to curl up with in your favorite rocking chair on a cold, rainy day. It is especially relevant for mothers and their pre-teen or young adult daughters, who will enjoy reading it together. It demonstrates the true meaning of family values without being preachy. Michelle Weisen weaves a magical tale that will leave it’s imprint on your heart.
I wanted to let you know what a wonderful job everyone did with this small but amazing book. I have shared it with all my colleagues and friends, and will place an order for several copies this fall to share with the staff in the autistic program.
