Dutton, Puffin Paperback

A sequel to THE BEARS’ HOUSE, this story starts a few years after the family has been broken up, the children sent to foster homes, and the mother to a hospital. How the family picks up all the pieces of their lives, and how The Bears House plays a part in their success is the main theme of this book.

Publisher’s Weekly:

“Sachs (is) a first rate story-teller.”
