I'm not even past the first paragraph yet and one word sums the book up: MELODRAMATIC! This is hilariously over the top prose. All in all, I think it should be an amusing read, a sort of literary, thrill-and-chill roller coaster.
I have always loved early 20th century girls' fiction, but just discovered the Patty Fairfield series. What a delight! Patty is midway between classics like Little Women and girls' series books such as the Stratemeyers; accessible yet with Carolyn Wells' trademark witty touch.
Recommended for anyone who loves classic children's stories filled with laughter and fun.
I first read this book when I was seven, which was over forty years ago. I loved it then (how I wished for a pink parasol like Rebecca's!) but I think I enjoyed it even more as an adult. Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm recalls a sweeter, more innocent and trusting time in our history.
Definitely a must-read for fans of LM Montgomery's "Anne" series.
