The Chronicles of Narnia by C. Lewis- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Prince Caspian: the Return to Narnia; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Silver Chair; The Horse and His Boy; The Magician's Nephew; The Last Battle
A Child Called "It" Very sad. I don't know how the woman called herself a mother. The Lost Boy & A Man Named Dave are also very good books. I literally read A Child Called It and The Lost Boy in the same sitting.
