The Snow Globe by Judith Kinghorn
Inside the glass orb was a miniature garden and a house. If she stared long enough, she could almost see the people inside. But whether they were trapped there, or kept safe, in that miniscule snowbound world, she couldnt have said...
Christmas 1926 holds bright promise for nineteen-year-old Daisy Forbes, with celebrations under way at Eden Hall, her familys country estate in Surrey, England. But when Daisy, the youngest of three daughters, discovers that her adored father, Howard, has been leading a double life, her illusions of perfection are shattered. Worse, his current mistress, introduced as a family friend, is joining them for the holidays. As Daisy wrestles with the truth, she blossoms in her own right, receiving a marriage proposal from one man, a declaration of love from another, and her first kiss from a third. Meanwhile, her mother, Mabel, manages these social complications with outward calm, while privately reviewing her life and contemplating significant changes. And among those below stairs, Nancy, the housekeeper, and Mrs. Jessops, the cook, find that their long-held secrets are slowly beginning to surface...
As the seasons unfold in the new year, and Daisy moves to London, desires, fortunes, and loyalties will shift during this tumultuous time after the Great War. The Forbes family and those who serve them will follow their hearts down unexpected paths that always return to where they began...Eden Hall.

Your article is very nice, congratulations. Wednesday, 31 January If I were trapped in a snow globe Earlier this month, the children at our little yellow school made snow globes for craft. Our Snow Globes While the children were making their snow globes, there was much discussion about what it would be like to be inside a snow globe. We invited the children who are using the Printed Story Alphabet to write an ending to a story starter about being trapped in a snow globe. They were very excited to get started on their stories! Once a child had settled on an idea, they worked with the Printed Story Alphabet to bring it to life.
