The Root Cellar (by Janet Lunn)

I'd never heard of Janet Lunn, and don't even remember where we picked up this book. However, it seemed like a good one to read aloud to my young teenage sons.

The story of 'The Root Cellar' is about Rose, who is unhappy with her aunt and uncle. She discovers a door that leads her to life in previous centuries, in the time of the American civil war. Lots of adventures ensue.

We thought the plot was very good, and that the people were realistic. It was certainly an exciting book, with some surprises along the way. Suitable for older children or teenagers, and works well when read aloud.
