Hildegarde's Neighbors

by Laura E. Richards

4th in the Hildegarde series. I've become so involved with these characters now that they have become real to me. Such simple times. It is like a window into a lost world. Sort of like the Twilight Zone episode entitled, "Willoughby." If you want simple, non-taxing mental escapism, definitely go for the Hildegarde series and then the Margaret Montfort series after it. Enjoy!

Hildegarde's Harvest

by Laura E. Richards

Last in the Hildegarde series. As the title implies, all of Hildegarde's dreams come true and happily-ever-after ensues. I thoroughly enjoyed them all. Try the Margaret Montfort series next--they are both strongly connected.

Sisters Three

by Mrs George de Horne Vaizey

Lively, engaging story of three sisters coming of age in England. A sweet, simple book. Recommended. Enjoy!

Affairs of State

by Burton E. Stevenson

A tale of two totally improbable (but enjoyable) romances. It reads like a comic opera--full of histrionic misunderstandings and overblown comic characters. Don't take any of it seriously. It is simple escapist fun. Enjoy!
