Children's-Book-Filter: Dead missionary parents, New England island, driving on ice
March 20, 2012 6:58 AM   Subscribe

Children's novel: Protagonist is the son of deceased missionaries, retaining only a comforter and a photograph. He lives with an aunt and uncle, and the plot concerns his reintegration into non-missionary society. Setting is an island in New England, and there are scenes of driving on the ice in the winter to get to the mainland.

This is a book from the dad-in-law's childhood, so probably pre-1960.
