About the Author:

Elizabeth Enright (1907-1968) was born in Oak Park, Illinois, but spent most of her life in or near New York City. Her mother was a magazine illustrator, while her father was a political cartoonist. Illustration was Enright's original career choice and she studied art in Greenwich, Connecticut; Paris, France; and New York City. After creating her first book in 1935, she developed a taste, and quickly demonstrated a talent, for writing. Throughout her life, she won many awards, including the 1939 John Newbery Medal for Thimble Summer and a 1958 Newbery Honor for Gone-Away Lake. Among her other beloved titles are her books about the Melendy family, including "The Saturdays", published in 1941. Enright also wrote short stories for adults, and her work was published in "The New Yorker", "The Ladies Home Journal", "Cosmopolitan", "The Yale Review", "Harper s", and "The Saturday Evening Post". She taught creative writing at Barnard College. Translated into many languages throughout the world, Elizabeth Enright's stories are for both the young and the young at heart.

From AudioFile:

Eleven-year-old Portia and cousin Julian search for hidden treasure in the mysterious old house the family has bought and is hard at work remodeling. Layers of history are revealed as old gowns and antique furniture from the original owner are discovered. The eccentric elderly brother and sister living nearby are practically historical treasures in their own right. Colleen Delany's lovely reading voice matches the book's old-fashioned formal tone, providing just the right qualities of wonder and mystery. The leisurely pace and the innocence of the protagonists may strike some readers as dated; others will take pleasure in escaping to another place and time.
