In the spirit of the great young characters of literature, Libbie Lyndton will find the hearts of readers after their eyes fall on the first page. A horse-crazy eight-year-old finds adventure wherever she goes and her trip takes her to mystical Mackinac Island set between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan. Always in search of her long past Grandmother, Ceilia, this startling saga set in 1953, with a preceding history from the late 1800, is a tale about The Grand Hotel. It is sure to entice everyone from the youngest to the most well-read. C. R. Kahme's first effort at luring her audience into sharing Libbie's adventure is a bold effort and well worth the read.
