Welcome to Stories Come to Life. I am your host, Kathryn Lopez Luker. During this time of Covid, many people aren’t able to use the library in the same way as in the past. To help bring more stories to more readers, many publishing companies are allowing books that are normally unavailable for copyright reasons to be read out loud and shared with others until June 30, 2022. The stories that fall under that special permission will all be taken down on that date, so listen now, while they’re available! Today’s story is shared with permission of HarperCollins Children’s Books.

Today we are beginning a new story, The Diamond in the Window, by Jane Langton. This book was published in 1962 and is still as exciting and intriguing as it was when it was new. It is the first in a series of eight books.

Eleanor and Edward Hall live in an old, rather rundown house that has towers and turrets and balconies, in the middle of historic Concord, Massachusetts. They live with their Aunt Lily and her brother, Uncle Freddy. One day they notice a colorful window up above the attics and realize they don’t know where that window is. They hunt for it and discover a mystery in their own house!

Now sit back, relax, and listen to this story come to life.
