Until the Robin Walks on Snow
By Bernice L. Rocque
Until the Robin Walks on Snow is a compelling story with lots of opportunities for discussion in homeschooling families. Here is the description:
It is 1922. An immigrant family and their devoted midwife struggle to save a tiny premature baby (1.5 pounds). Inspired by real events in Norwich, Connecticut, this historical fiction novella about determination, family, faith, and friendship includes a story chapter about the family’s Polish and Lithuanian Christmas Eve traditions. Appendices include a List of Sources Consulted and Author’s Notes about the facts, family history, and research behind the story.
Here is an excerpt from the 2013 review by The Old Schoolhouse Magazine.
…while reading this wonderful novella, I spent many months in story time with these people from long ago, holding my breath with them, as they struggled so to save this precious little one, while continuing to try to live their lives at the same time.
The book is a 2013 recipient of a GOLD Mom’s Choice Award for YA Historical Fiction. It was also a FINALIST in the 2013 National Indie Excellence Award, in the category, FACTION (fiction based on fact).
