Penderwicks are at it again. This one takes place about 5 years after the last installment. Fun to check in on the family and neighbors after another large time jump. Focused mainly on Batty, there are some tough issues touched upon here, mostly about grief. ( )

I actually think I enjoyed this one more this time around? But it also just didn't have the same nostalgia as the earlier books in the series...

This book was... sort of a mess. But also sort of good.

Mostly it just left me with an unshakable longing to read about teenage Jane and Skye and Rosalind and Jeffery, instead of being stuck with Batty who is quite honestly sorta boring.

Still though, this book was pretty good. It was also sort of... dark. I dunno. I don't really know how to review this, because there was this weird mix of nostalgia but also not nostalgia because I hated this the first time I read it, and it made rereading this weird.

I do think it was good though. I just had some weird mixed feelings towards it, because it half had nostalgia and half really didn't. ( )

I don't know how I missed this one, but I'm glad that I've read it now. It was delightful, like I expected it to be. ( )

Another satisfying Penderwick adventure. I do wish some of the characters weren't aging out of the stories quite so quickly. ( )

The Penderwicks return in this fourth novel devoted to their adventures, which is told largely from Batty's perspective (although there are a few chapters featuring Ben's point of view), and which grapples with more serious issues than its predecessors. Some time has passed since the various holidays taken in The Penderwicks at Point Mouette, and Batty is now a middle schooler, and the senior member of the younger Penderwicks, including herself, Ben (a baby in previous books, but now a second-grader), and the newest addition to the family, in the form of two-year-old Lydia. Oldest sister Rosalind is now a freshman at college, and Skye and Jane are high-schoolers. As Batty looks forward to her eleventh birthday celebration, which will bring all of her loved ones together again - Rosalind home from college, Jeffrey from his music school in Boston, and next-door-neighbor Nick Geiger back from war in the Middle East - she makes two earth-shattering discoveries. The first is that she has both a gift for and a love of singing, which she hopes to use to surprise her family at the upcoming celebration. The second, in the form of an overheard conversation, is that she was the cause of her birth mother's death. This latter throws her into a terrible state of grief, reinforcing her conviction that she was also somehow responsible for her beloved dog Hound's death, and sending her into a state of deep despair. The resolution of this crisis forms the conclusion of the tale...

After loving the first two books about this family, and enjoying (but not loving) the third, I approached The Penderwicks in Spring with some trepidation, hoping it would herald a return to the earlier books, in terms of my engagement. Although not quite like those earlier books in tone or theme, it ended up eclipsing them altogether, when it came to my emotional involvement and eventual enjoyment. The crisis that Batty faces felt entirely real and realistic to me - it is something (the death of the girls' mother) that had always been there in the story, but had never been fully explored, and it made sense that it would be Batty who eventually brought it to the fore. Although Skye's words were cruel, her feelings too, in blaming Batty for Mrs. Penderwick's death were understandable too, although I wasn't sure what to make of her confession that she had never much liked Batty, as this felt somehow out of keeping with earlier developments in the series. That particular scene would have been more believable if Skye had mentioned resenting Batty, but also loving her, which I think is closer to the truth. Whatever the case may be, I found the story here absolutely gripping, and was choking up on more than one occasion as I read. The happy ending (of course!) was all the more welcome, given the truly serious issues of loss and grief raised in the story. As with the previous books, I had no sooner finished this, than I was reaching for the fifth (and final) Penderwicks story, The Penderwicks at Last. ( )

Only one low mound of snow still lurked in Batty Penderwick's yard, under the big oak tree out back, and soon that would be gone if Batty continued to stomp on it with such determination.
