    Review  The Root Cellar 108 The Root CellarAt one point in Janet Lunn's The Root Cellar a time slip adventure story first published in 1981 and considered a classic of modern Canadian children's literature the heroine Rose Larkin lying in a uiet hospital room recalling the terrible tales of war she had just been hearing that afternoon and reflecting on the deep and lasting hurt inflicted by that war on the soldiers who had fought in it even on those who had survived reflects with heartfelt grief Being a person's too hardit's just too hardThat hardness that difficulty in being a person of not knowing where you belong or where you should want to belong or who you even are; of not understanding all the complicated

    Review  The Root Cellar 108 The Root CellarThis was my favorite book when I was twelve I dug it out of the basement a few months ago and re read it This time I still liked it but thought it was a bit sappy at parts Hence the four stars My twelve year old self would have given it five stars Still a great read I'll pass it along to my unborn children

    Review  The Root Cellar 108 The Root CellarI read this book in elementary school and remember really enjoying the idea that you could climb down into a root cellar and then climb out into the 1860's I loved the whole theme that it doesn't matter when you come from but only where you belong especially when you are young and have lost your parents I picked it up again recently out of nostalgia and it brought back a lot of memories
