Clover by Susan Coolidge is a wonderful children’s historical novel and the first book in the Clover Carr Chronicles. It continues on from where the Carr Family series finished.
Clover is just as enchanting as the previous novels. Clover is the sister down from Katy. She is quieter but just as kind and good hearted.
The book moves from the family home to the mountains as Clover offers to look after her younger sibling who is in ill health, needing the fresh mountain air. Here, we see Clover blossom.
The reader ‘walks’ through the mountains due to rich descriptions from the author.
It is delightful watching the children grow up and become independent adults. Susan Coolidge novels ooze charm and are positively delightful.
