I found this book in our church's library when I was 9 years old and I fell in love with it at first read. The idea of a "daddy long legs" growing up was very powerful to me -- especially as someone with 6 brothers and sisters!
I reread this book several times finally checking it out for the last time when I was about 11. Fast forward 30 years and my 10 year checked out this book from the same church library -- and was the next person to check it out since me!
She loves the book as much as I do -- romantic, delightful, empowering.
Give it a read, it is wonderful!
