Em | 2 comments My dad remembers a book from his childhood (he's in his fifties) that he loved but was never able to remember the name of. The only things he remembers is that it's about a girl who goes to live with her two aunts (for some period of time, (most likely a season), and it's very cold. The aunts live in a very grand house sitting above a village, and each chapter starts with an illustration of something in the house. He thinks that the girl was probably in middle school, and he also remembers a scene where they warm up the beds in the house by heating bricks and putting them under the mattresses. The villagers in the town suspect the aunts of witchcraft, and some mystery is afoot. That's all he can really remember, but if anyone could help out it would mean the world :)
