Wholly delightful. I found it impossible to put down and read it in one great gulp. I don’t think I could have loved it more, had I read it as a child. The characters are lovely, each and all. The story, while never veering from the path to a happy ending, had plenty of dips and bobbles and surprises. I grinned my way through much of it, and am not ashamed to tell you my eyes filled with tears at the end. It’s wholesome without being smarmy, and fun without being arch.

Forgive me if I’m seeing Betsy-Tacy things that aren’t there, but the fact that Pa’s middle name is Warrington made me chortle.

Recommended without reservations.
