andlt;b andgt;A Newbery Honorand#8211;winning installment of the Cynthia Voigtand#8217;s classic Tillerman series is repackaged with a fresh new look.andlt;/bandgt;andlt;brandgt;andlt;brandgt;Jeff Greene was only seven when he came home from school to find a note from his mother. She felt that the world needed her more than her and#8220;grown upand#8221; son did. For someone who believed she could see the worldand#8217;s problems so clearly, she was blind to the heartache and difficulties she pushed upon her son, leaving him with his reserved, undemonstrative father.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;So when, years later, she invites Jeff to spend summers with her in Charleston, Jeff is captivated by her free spirit and warmth, and a happiness heand#8217;s been missing fills him. But Jeff's second visit ends with a devastating betrayal and an aching feeling of loneliness. In life, there can be emotional pits so deep that seemingly nothing will growand#8212;but if he digs a little deeper, Jeff might just come out on the other side.andnbsp;
