For some, the holidays are rough enough when a loved one is missing. For Cassie Evans and Skye Mackenna who are both missing their parents, the approaching holidays seem unbearable. Then, just past midnight on December 1st, splat! Skye awoke to paint splattering her bedroom windows. She got out of bed to see what was going on, but all through the house the windows were covered with paint. Skye awakened Cassie who was spending the night, but, neither one could find a window that had not been painted. Up to the cold, icy rooftop they went to the only window that had not yet been painted. What they saw from the rooftop was both breathtaking and amazing. The holidays had begun. And there was so much more to Parkerville than they could have ever imagined, both wonderful and extremely frightening.
Harriet Trevathan and Nancy C. Wilson were friends in their teen years in the 60's and decided to write a fictional story of those years and some of their memories. I'm not saying that they lived in a town like Parkerville, that's another story altogether, but the adventures and fun are a part of these books. Harriet writes for her character Cassie and for Cassie's friends and family. Nancy writes for Skye and Skye's friends and family.
