Daddy-Long-Legs

by Jean Webster

Jerusha Abbott was brought up at the John Grier Home, an old-fashioned orphanage where the children were wholly dependent on charity. At the age of 18, her education finished, she is at loose ends, and has begun to work in the dormitories of the orphanage when the asylum's trustees make their monthly visit. An unidentified trustee has spoken to Jerusha's former teachers, has heard she is an excellent writer, and has offered to pay for college tuition and a generous monthly allowance on the condition that she writes him a monthly letter -- but she will never know his identity, and he will never reply.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
