Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard

by Eleanor Farjeon

I love this book! I bought it 20 years ago (polish translation) and I keep it. I have a habit to read it once a year.

Something for people who have young hearts.

Turn About Eleanor

by Ethel M. Kelley

Written in 1917 with prose that remains contemporary, and has a modern voice. With today's style of blended families, three couples agree to sponsor a young woman who is essentially in poverty, near death. She grows up from 10 to 20, and the six singles turn into two, almost three couples, and the adopted daughter reveils she's fallen in love with one of her father figures. All's well that ends well, but the emotions are vivid.
