Evelina

by Fanny Burney

I love Fanny Burney. I first read Evelina in the 1970s when I was feeling bereft because I had just finished reading everything by Jane Austen, and as far as I was concerned, there was nothing left worth reading. Enter Evelina. I loved it. I have wondered ever since if it was as good as I remembered. It is. Fanny Burney writes very well. I am on to Cecilia and Camilla and then to Fanny's famous personal diaries. Thanks Manybooks for finding these wonderful volumes.

Tale of the Witch Doll

by Mildred A. Wirt

I am so excited to have found the Penny Parker series here on Manybooks. I have wanted to read these for years! The author wrote the first 5 Nancy Drew stories for the Stratemeyer syndicate. She didn't enjoy the restriction of the Stratemeyer rules and wrote this series on her own. I may have been the number one Nancy Drew fan on the planet when I was a kid, and I found Penny Parker to be just as good if not better. Maybe a little edgier? I loved it and will read everything by Mildred A Wirt Benson that Manybooks can get! Highly recommended for Nancy Drew fans. Enjoy!

Hildegarde's Holiday

by Laura E. Richards

The 2nd in the Hildegarde series. I liked it. I don't know why I'm reading kids' books in my 60s, but there it is. Hildegarde continues growing up in this one and learns to care even more deeply for others. Worthy.

Hildegarde's Home

by Laura E. Richards

3rd in the Hildegarde series. This is such a nice, escapist series. It is very positive to read about people who truly enjoy every aspect of their lives. It is great fun and sometimes inspiring. A glimpse into a time when people truly seemed to care about the people around them. How sad that we seem to have lost that in our culture.
