Description

The Alden siblings are spending the summer on a ranch out West—and learning some mysterious secrets about their own family. After they were orphaned, Henry, Jessie, Violet, and Benny lived together in a railroad boxcar. Now they have a home with their grandfather. He always helps them with their problems, but this time he has one of his own: his sister, Jane. She lives out West on a ranch all alone and needs someone to stay with her. Too bad she's so grumpy and eccentric that no one can seem to get along with her! She hasn't even spoken to her brother in years. So this summer, the Alden kids are going to keep Aunt Jane company and help her with the chores. It will be an adventure—but little do they know their aunt is hiding a secret, and their visit will bring about some unexpected discoveries . . .

      • bioText:

        Gertrude Chandler Warner (1890–1979) was an American author of children's books, most notably the nineteen original titles in the Boxcar Children Mysteries series. Warner was raised in Putnam, Connecticut, across the street from a railroad station, which later inspired her to write about children living in a boxcar. In 1918, she began what would become a thirty-two-year career teaching first and third grade at the Israel Putnam School. She died in Putnam on August 30, 1979, when she was eighty-nine years old. But the Boxcar Children live on: To this day, talented authors contribute new stories to the series, which now includes over one hundred twenty books.
