Gayle’s Gable

Dicey, James, Sammy, and Maybeth sit, abandoned, in the mall parking lot. Momma had hurried into the mall that morning, but now, night encroaches and the children huddle in the car. Thirteen-year-old Dicey, however, proves resourceful. She washes windows, carries groceries, and counts every penny as she shepherds her family towards their great-aunt’s house in a nearby town. Cynthia Voigt’s Homecoming tells the story of their journey as the children stay together, look for a stable home, and discover an unlikely new family member in the process. Homecoming is the first book in the Tillerman cycle.
