The Penderwicks written by Jeanne Birdsall
I am just starting the book -The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy. It is on a "might be a contender" list for a Newbery I think. Has anyone read it yet. I'm not sure, from the first chapter, that this one suits my reading tastes, but more later after I get into it, or not.
