    I loved this book My mom had told me that I should read it but I wasn t sure at first Then, I got into it and it is now on my small list of best books I ve read I really hope thatpeople read it and don t just skip by it because it s older Personally, I think that it s better being set in an older setting.

    This was an easy 5 when I first read it in the 70s, back when I seemingly couldn t find enough books about islands Certain scenes from it had stayed with me forthan 40 years, so it was a special treat to receive it as a gift and get to revisit Carmar Ogali Retne yesterday Reading it again, I could still feel some of the magic my 8 or 9 year old self experienced back then, and I could see why it had made an impression I was struck this time, though, by the sometimes odd dynamics between This was an easy 5 when I first read it in the 70s, back when I seemingly couldn t find enough books about islands Certain scenes from it had stayed with me forthan 40 years, so it was a special treat to receive it as a gift and get to revisit Carmar Ogali Retne yesterday Reading it again, I could still feel some of the magic my 8 or 9 year old self experienced back then, and I could see why it had made an impression I was struck this time, though, by the sometimes odd dynamics between the siblings and cousins they call each other stupid a lot, for example and the girls and boy alike are prone to histrionics, and I m pretty sure none of that would have registered with me back then It s a small thing, but it did make me recall when my own daughter, now a high school senior, came home from either kindergarten or first grade saying that one of her classmates had gotten in trouble that day for saying the s word which turned out to be stupid Different times, I guess On the other hand, the Osprey Island children do have uncommonly good relationships with their parents, and the mutual respect shown in the two traditional nuclear families is solid and clear I m pretty sure that s something I would have found enviable back then Anyway, thank you, Denise, for tracking this down based solely on the parts I remembered it was, for sure, a 5 star gift, and I enjoyed the time travel First lines It was their last day together and what were they doing Picking beans

    I don t remember much about this book except that I liked it and it was about cousins who created a name for their island out of their own names Carmarogiliretne.
