Georgina of the Rainbows

by Annie Fellows Johnston

I loved, loved, loved this book!! It makes me want to go to Provincetown and see if any of the landmarks she mentions with such love are still there! Hope I can find the sequel somewhere!!

Old Rose and Silver

by Myrtle Reed

I completely agree with the first reviewer below! This is a charming book, reminiscent of the writing of Jane Austen, but more sweet and sentimental. I couldn't put it down and it kept me up late several nights! Here's a small example of the vividness of her writing:

"Crimson and golden leaves rained from the maples, and the purple winds of Autumn swept them into drifts at the roadside. Amethystine haze shimmered in the valleys and lay, cloud-like, upon the distant hills. "
