This well written, engaging story demonstrates the resilience and resourcefulness of children when faced with hardship. Four children, left to fend for themselves in rural Nova Scotia, will do anything to stay together as a family. As the title suggests, the story is both heartbreaking and satisfying. The author has a delightful way of drawing the reader in to the thoughts and feelings of the children and has you cheering for them right to the end. I highly recommend this book for all ages.
