Poor Betty Gordon! Are things ever going to get better in her young life? I wasn't sure what I had gotten myself into when I first started reading this book (the first in the Betty Gordon series), as it seemed things kept going from bad to worse for Betty. My persistence paid off though, and Betty prevailed. Betty Gordon is a young spitfire who, upon being orphaned, is first sent to live with family friends, and then to a farm. The farm is that of a friend of her uncle, her new guardian, and he is sure it will be a lovely and delightful place. Read the book to find out how she fares on Bramble Farm. I really found this book to be quite delightful. It was published in 1920, and shows its age, but is still thoroughly readable, especially if you enjoy other syndicate written series, such as The Bobbsey Twins. Be warned, the entire Betty Gordon series contains 15 titles, and ManyBooks only has the first 5 available.
