Read full description of the books The Sunroom:Although I've read A LOT of Lewis's books, somehow I'd missed this one. As usual, there is a strong religious tone to the book, but the story is told in first person and not from the perspective of a member of the Plain community (although, of course, there is a Mennonite family among their circle of close friends). This is the story of a 12 year old girl whose mother is diagnosed with cancer in the early 1950s. Becky Owens has to reconcile her faith with her fears for her beloved mother, and the result is, at turns, sweet and heart-breaking.
One thing that really struck me as I read is how different the life of this preteen is from that of most of today's kids. Becky and her sister are so much more innocent, and their everyday lives so much simpler without all of today's gadgets and activities. At times, I felt she was too childlike, but then I realized that she grew up in a different time and place. The contrast is pretty striking, though!
I have to say, this is one instance in which Ms. Lewis surprised me with the ending. I was pretty sure that, as usual, I knew how this was going to go from early on, but I was completely wrong!
