Hattie Owen has lived in a small town all her life. She is shy, and desires to stay at home, in her family's boarding house, where the eccentric tenants offer all the excitement she needs. But at the same time, she wants to escape the stern, repressive influence of her wealthy grandparents.

But Hattie's life changes when a relative arrives, a relative that she has never been told about. Adam is her uncle, but his existence has been hidden because of his mental disabilities. When the institution that Adam has been living at closes, Hattie's family must accept Adam back into their family. As Hattie cares for Adam it helps her to develop her own personality and make new friends.

“A Corner of the Universe” has an average plot, slightly historical, but not very unique. Except for Adam, the characters are all rather predictable. Adam is the strong point of this book, teaching lessons about how people should treat the mentally disabled. “A Corner of the Universe” is an interesting novel with a touching and thought provoking ending.
