Yet another tale of an orphan who goes to live with New England relatives, grows a personality, solves a mystery, makes friends, heals relationships, etc. If you like this kind of thing, "Understood Betsy", Carolyn of the Corners", and "Pollyanna" do it better.
two and a half to three stars
Executions, revolutions, disguises, a marriage to a mysterious, unknown veiled lady...and that's before we get shipwrecked and cast away on a deserted island! It wraps up a bit hastily, but up till then this book is pure romantic adventure.
An episode from Lincoln's novel "Mr. Pratt", reworked in the short form. It stands well enough on its own, but I would recommend enjoying the story in the proper context, as it is much more fun.
A young man with a secret lives a a life of indolence and retirement with his invalid mother in a sleepy Cape Cod village, until a new neighbor shakes up the whole town, and causes him to re-examine the life he's barely living. The main character is by turns endearing and exasperating, but it's fun to watch him develop as a person.
