Written from the perspective of a young girl, a family decide to move to the wilderness (US or Canada) to start a chinchilla or other furry animal farm.. They fail because the animals die from the cold. I think this bit is set in the 19th ,century. And is actually from a diary found by a contemporary person. So there are two stories: the historical one and then the contemporary one. I remember the diary from the 19 th century is found in an abandoned house. It was a great book. Pls help, trying to remember is driving me crazy!
