    The title ‘The Windy Hill’ caught my eye as I was looking through a list of books published in 1921, because none of the books I had lined up to fill that slot in my Century of Books were really calling me. I liked the title, I liked the cover, and a little basic research revealed the ‘The Windy Hill’ was a runner-up for the inaugural Newbery Medal, and that it was available on Project Gutenberg. And so I began to readOliver and his sister, Janet, were spending the summer with their moth [...]

    While not quite as brilliant as the other two Meigs books I've read so far, this is a pleasant story. The character development (particularly of the antagonist, I thought) isn't quite as good as in her later books, but it has the same beautiful descriptive writing. One of the most interesting elements is the series of flashback stories, each taking place around the Windy Hill at a different period in American history, which have apparently no other connection at first, but have the link between [...]

    This didn’t have the most complex plot, and it was relatively predictable. However, its charm was pretty compelling. I liked the gentle moral guidelines, and the ending suited me well. The story flowed smoothly without getting boring, and I felt like all of the characters grabbed me in appropriate ways. I appreciate when authors give a very casual push in how to treat people ethically. If people are cruel to you, you get to be cruel to them back, right?! Well hmm. The book laid this out with [...]

    I enjoyed the stories of formative family history that are interwoven with Meigs's front story line, and the charming nature of the whole book overcomes what to me is a highly unrealistic character change.

    A history of a family. Story develops is a interesting fashion through supplemental stories and a bit of intrigue.

    The main story about Oliver and his sister helping their cousin Jasper is ok. The real treasures are the intermittent flashback stories told be the Beeman. It is worth the read for those three short stories. If those could be pulled out and published separately, they would be well received. My rating is actually more of a 3.5 and I might have leaned towards 3, but it deserves more than the 3.39 that it currently has, so I had to go to 4.

    Pretty good story. I like the format of telling stories to explain the family history that the children did not know about. Some of the characters are fairly distinct, like Oliver and the Beeman, while others seemed little more than placeholders. However, for a children's book written in 1921, it's not too bad.

    This book can be a good choice for a child who loves to read and will enjoy a wholesome mystery. The story does move a little slowly at points, so it's not a good choice for reluctant reader. Most readers who make it to the end will enjoy how it comes together and be glad they read it.

    One of the earliest Newbery Honor books, The Windy Hill is the story of two teens (Oliver and Janet) learning about their family's history via stories told by the mysterious Beeman while they stay with an uncle who is under some kind of duress. Overall, this is the most moralistic of the books from the 1922 Newbery cycle. I read this for my 2017 Reading Challenge "read a book published between 1900 and 1950" (Read Harder) and my Newbery Challenge.

    A charming, children's book set in the early 20th century. There were interesting historical flashbacks set within the story, a bit of mystery/a puzzle that needed piecing together, and satisfying character development - for a kid's book that is.

    Amy from Hope is the Word is once again hosting her wonderful Newbery Through the Decades challenge. Each month, from January to October, participants read Newbery medal and honor books from each decade in which the award has been given. January's focus is on the 1920s. This is a tough decade because some of the books are hard to find and others seem dreary and difficult to read. Still, last year, I read Downright Dencey, which wound up being excellent once I got into the language, and prior to [...]

    I re-read this book as part of my goal to read all the Newbery Medal and Honor books. As a child, I remember this book being a breath of fresh air after reading Hendrik Willem van Loon's The Story of Mankind. That didn't change as an adult. This story chronicles the dynamics of an extended family, with one character, known as The Beeman until readers figure out who he is, doling out family stories to the main character, Oliver Peyton, and his sister, Janet. The Beeman's information becomes impor [...]

    I recently finished reading The Windy Hill written by Cornelia Lynde Meigs in 1921. The book was selected as a Newbery Honor Book in 1922, the first year the awards were given. Two other books penned by Ms. Meigs were selected as Honor Books -- Clearing Weather in 1928 and Swift Rivers in 1933. In 1934, Ms. Meigs received the Newbery Medal for her book, Invincible Louisa, a biographical account of the life of Louisa May Alcott.In The Windy Hill Oliver and Janet Peyton have traveled to Medford Va [...]

    Newbery Honor 1921Good, engaging story with likable characters. The resolution of the conflict and the redemption of the villain was a bit too sudden, but not unbelievable. This is the story of Terri children who go to visit their cousin and stumble on a tense situation and a mystery. Interspersed in the story are talks told by a respected adult. These are good stories, and it all eventually ties together, but I wish they had been a little more connected textually. They were in separate chapters [...]

    In 1922 the first ever Newbery Award was given for the book The Story of Mankind. That book was impressive as in 'oh my, I can't believe anyone actually wrote this book.' This book, the Windy Hill, is impressive as in 'oh my, that is an excellent book.' In my opinion, The Windy Hill should have won the first Newbery Award.The Windy Hill is full of stories which come to life in a little valley where everyone knows everyone else. It is full of mystery and excitement. The stories have adventure. An [...]

    1924 Newbery Honor BookThis book was fairly easy to obtain off Project Gutenberg because it's public domain. I finished it in a few days reading it while I waited for my daughters to fall asleep. I wasn't sure what to expect because I had no idea what it was about but it quickly surprised me.The main characters are Oliver and Janet, siblings that come to live with their Cousin Jasper. They notice that Jasper is not the same person they knew before. He seems upset. At the beginning of the book, O [...]

    3.5 stars1922 Newbery Honor BookThis book was quite engaging, I enjoyed the characters and trying to put together the pieces of the puzzle as the author presented them.

    Strongly moral and gung-ho for capitalism with individual restraint: unsurprising early Newbery fodder. It features the only land transaction between a native American and an immigrant one that was mutually understood, agreed upon, kept to, and, get this, financially honest, that I have ever come across in fact or fiction. Propaganda, ahoy!

    This is a Newberry Honor Book from 1922. I loved Meigs' descriptions and the characters. It is a mystery of sorts and there are such engaging stories within the main story. I really enjoyed them the most!

    I'm not sure how this qualified for a Newbery, but in my quest to read all of the Newbery medal and honor books, I'm glad I was able to finish it. I downloaded this onto my kindle at no charge from .

    It was good and quick read. The choice of words by author were enticing. Some of storytellings were incorporated in this book by one of main characters. There are some life lessons and motto throughout the story.

    My Favorite of the 1922 Honor books. Glad I am finished with that year. Wow. Fun to find out what people back then thought were good reads. :)
