Synopsis:

I loved this one!
A story about a family from long ago - 1940's - These children are hit with hard times and are sent to live with family they've never met. In a place foreign to these New York City raised children - the mountains of Virginia.
They are shown love and introduced to their parents all over again through old letters and stories.
Times were hard back then and this tells that story as well.
It is a tear-jerker so bring you tissues!
