Guild member Edie Hemingway has won a 2009 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for her middle grade novel, Road to Tater Hill.
Booklist says “the heart of this first novel is the sense of place, described in simple lyrical words: the soaring mountains and the valley rippling outward 'in waves and waves of fading blue,' like one of Grandma’s patchwork quilts. True to Annie’s viewpoint, the particulars tell a universal drama of childhood grief, complete in all its sadness, anger, loneliness, and healing.”
When she is not busy writing herself, Edie leads writing workshops at Misty Hill Lodge, her 1930s log cabin home atop Braddock Mountain near Frederick, Maryland. Find out more on her website www.ediehemingway.com and watch the compelling book trailer for Road to Tater Hill.
