The Big House Story Of A Southern Family Volume 1
"I don't know why Mama knew Daddy was going to hurt us," Minnie says. "She yanked us out of the bed and over to the wall. The door flew open. There was a huge explosion! Daddy had fired his shotgun into our bed." Minnie leaves boarding school to spend the summer at The Big House, her cherished Grandpa's home. She enjoys adventure, but she also learns of the dangers posed by the land and a river that can seduce the unwary.
