The Addie Mills Stories

In 1946, ten-year-old Addie Mills lives in Clear River, Nebraska, with her solemn father and loving grandmother. Addie’s mother died when she was still a baby, but that doesn’t stop her from being a straight-A student. Besides school, Addie loves horses and painting and drawing; when she grows up, she wants to be a famous artist and study in Paris.

In these holiday-centric stories based on the author’s own experiences, Addie learns the true meaning of Christmas and Thanksgiving, makes an unlikely friend during Easter, and sets her sights on someone special for Valentine’s Day.
