The Windy Hill by Cornelia Meigs is a children's book which was a Newbery Honor recipient in 1922. In it a family mystery is unraveled by a boy and girl visiting their uncle one summer.
I hope you enjoy this book. When I first started reading books on my Nook Library I noticed that there are many free classics available. However the formatting is terrible and some are unreadable because of errors in the text. Therefore, I decided to start publishing quality classics that included chapter breaks, table of contents, linked chapters, and illustrations when available. Keep your eye out for inspirational stories from us, EirenikosPress.
