Product Description


"Overall this is a pleasant story, with a unique setting that will introduce students to a chapter of Canadian history in a rural community."

(Gillian Richardson Resource Links 2002-02-01)

"Gold's tender storytelling and careful research make this work enjoyable and educational."

(Howard Bokser Concordia University Magazine 2002-06-01)

The year is 1927, and the Merril children are once again in school – but one that's unlike any other. For 10 months out of the year their school, set up in a Northern Ontario railway care that also serves as their home, is on the move. Theirteen-year-old Jenny Merrill loves life on the tracks, but she has a secret wish. She's fallen in love with a violin on page 244 of the Eaton's catalogue. But how will she get the money to pay for it?
