Lucy Maud Montgomery Short Stories, 1896 to 1901

by Lucy Maud Montgomery

brilliant collection.
they cover all the realms from christmas spirits to spirits from the other world. Most importantly they are tales of love, not necessarily romantic love.

brilliant collection.
some are just hillarious, others are plain heart touching, but again the love and friendship shines through all of them

Molly Make-Believe

by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott

what happens when you are too sick to be moved, only love of your life has left you and life is very very bleak. well you start to subscribe the professional letter writer for special package of love letters.
loved this book for its simplicty.

Bab: A Sub-Deb

by Mary Roberts Rinehart

superlative.
MRR brings alive the prewar upper-class england alive through the eyes of her "on the verge" debutante. the travails of bab some time seem true even now. after all the problems of the guys, school, elder siblings and chequebook are still relevent and all engrossing even today.
though towards the last one does get to know the working of babs mind so soem of the incidents/surprises are not so surpising. but still the sincerity of the bab wins the day.
