A mountain vacation was what Annegret and her mother needed to recover completely from pneumonia -- that is what the doctor ordered and that is what Father planned. Mother made all kinds of objections to leaving Germany and going off to Switzerland for three months without Father. Annegret, too, was listless about the idea, but the day came when they departed by train for Arosa, a small resort high int he Alps. Even when Annegret found they were to stay in a delightful house called The Shooting Star, with a small observatory attached, owned by an astronomer and his wife, she didnt feel excited.But as the wintry days went by, she began to discover more and more things of interest.

First of all there were the birds that came every day to the balcony feeding station. Then there was Jurg, a neighbors boy who brought Mothers groceries up from the village and who, when Annegret was well enough, gave her skiing lessons. And often in her thoughts was the mystery of the small gray donkey who seemed to Annegret to have stepped right out of the Bible Christmas story.The clear beauty of the mountain country, the independence of the sturdy people who live there, the growing self-reliance of a nine-year-old girl are woven into a happy story by the author whose first book published in this country, The Ark, won immediate acclaim.

Benary-Isberts Blue Mystery and A Time to Love are sequels to this book.
