Details: One day, a strange family with four children, moved into the small town of Middlesex. No one knew who they were, and no one liked them, as there was no mother, and the father was a drunk. The very next day, the father is dead, and the children are on their own, forced to seek refuge in a railroad boxcar in an attempt to remain together. Will they find a home, away from the grandfather they believe is a cruel man? Join us for a classic tale of family, mystery and adventure, in the first book in the “Box-Car Children” series.
