By Arthur Dale Likens
Many years ago, an old woman delivered this message to Carl’s mother on a dark, city street. Eight-year-old Carl and his seven brothers and sisters are mystified by this strange story. What is the importance of the wounded, white dove? How could such a dove bring many blessings to a large, deprived family? What hidden secrets must Carl uncover? Will Carl ever find the wounded white dove?
Once again, Arthur Dale Likens weaves a beautiful story about an incredible, loving family living on a lonely, dusty road known as Anglin’ Road. There are more struggles and adventures–blizzards, a possible murder, an abandoned tent, and Carl’s beloved brother Glen’s health is deteriorating. Friends–old and new–and loving relatives come to share in the laughter, the dancing, and the singing that echo across the valley.
