The Velvet Room

ebook

Finding a special place where you can be at peace is difficult—but holding onto it is even harder

The last three years of Robin Williams's life have been very difficult. She's had to move with her large, poor family multiple times as her father seeks jobs as a migrant worker. Now, her father has a new job at the McCurdy Ranch and Robin often wanders off in order to cope with the constant change and difficulty surrounding her.

Near the McCurdy Ranch is the Palmeras House, an old abandoned house that Robin is told repeatedly not to explore. However, with a little help, she finds herself inside the building, in the one place it seems she has always been looking for: the Velvet Room. This plush room is the most beautiful place she has ever seen. Robin is fascinated and enchanted, but she can't help but wonder: Why is it there?

This ebook features an extended biography of Zilpha Keatley Snyder.
