One of my favorite stories from childhood is Treasures of the Snow by Patricia St. John.
This is a sweet, difficult story of families living on a mountain in French-speaking Switzerland. Hard feelings and frustrations lead to an unforgettable and unforgivable accident.
How the two families, especially the children, work through the ramifications of the accident make up the bulk of the story and includes clear lessons of Christian forgiveness.
Highly recommended for ages six (read-aloud), ten (read alone) and up.
The Audible version of the audiobook is also a treasure, beautifully read by Pamela Garelick.
