Before they were the Boxcar Children, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny Alden lived with their parents on Fair Meadow Farm.
Although times are hard, the Aldens are happy - “the best family of all,” Mama likes to say. One day, a blizzard hits the countryside, and a traveling family needs shelter. The Aldens take them in, and the strangers soon become friends. But things never stay the same at the farm, and the spring and summer bring events that will forever change their lives.
Newbery Award-winning author Patricia MacLachlan pays loving tribute to the classic novels by Gertrude Chandler Warner in this story of the Alden children’s origins.

Please forgive me if there are any typos in this review. I am using a kindle to type this and it isn't the easiest. :)
The only problem I have with it is that the writing style is so different from Gertrude Chandler Warner's own style that it's hard to ignore. I'm not saying that its bad, but being a writer myself I can recognize different writing styles and it takes away from the otherwise excellent story. Boxcar Children fans will certainly enjoy learning about how four children came to stand in in front of a bakery and learn about what happened on Fair Meadow Farm and the secret origin of The Boxcar Children.

My 9 year old loved it.
All the books are not available on amazon.
Books are imported so very expensive.
Wish there would be a tie up with an indian publication so the books could be priced more aggressively.
