Polly and and her sister come to live with their Grandmother on an island near Vancouver. It's the depression and their Father has fallen on hard times and gotten himself in trouble. So, they must adapt to a new life with a new part of their family. A really delightful period piece, Kit Pearson never fails to write heartwarming fiction.

In the summer of 1932, the lives of shy Polly and her outspoken older sister Maud have been turned upside down! Their father is missing and presumed dead, so they are westward bound on a train to live on an island midway between Vancouver and Victoria with the grandmother they’ve never met. Almost immediately, 15-year-old Maud heads excitedly to boarding school, leaving Polly, 10, devastated and lonely. Slowly, she works her way through her grief and isolation, making a new friend and eventually accepting the warm embrace of her extended family. But the sisters share a secret which could destroy their new lives. Will the whole truth ever be known? A gentle coming-of-age story with a mystery twist. A sequel, And Nothing but the Truth, is to be published this fall. Reviewed by DC

Even better than this book was when the author herself commented on my book blog's review of it! Fantastic. http://anovelthing.wordpress.com/2012/03/02/the-whole-truth-kit-pearson/
