Thanksgiving At The Inn by Tim Whitney
Title: Thanksgiving at the Inn
Author(s): Tim Whitney
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: Bancroft Press
Release Date: October 1, 2009
Finished: December 2009
My Thoughts: Young Heath Wellington III doesn't get along with his father, which isn't a surprise because Heath's father doesn't get along with his father (Heath's grandfather) either. Now Heath Sr. has passed away and left an odd request for his son Heath Jr. to follow, or he doesn't get any inheritance. The will mentions an Inn that the grandfather owned, and he wants his son and grandson to live at the Inn and take care of the animals and people that come with it.
This story is told through the eyes of the younger Heath. He makes new friends and tries to understand his father and himself. Even though the book has Thanksgiving in the title, it does not have to be read during Thanksgiving. It's a with charming characters for any season.
