A delightful story for girls, in which out-of-door sports and activities are interwove with a delightful plot and a lovable heroine's exciting adventures.

Show Excerpt

He laughed, although he held her very close.

"Do you think, my dear, I would go away until I felt very certain that you were going to be happy? I'm not sure how well you'd like it at Aunt Josephine's--it would be very different. Still--you'd have that French maid of hers for a nurse and go out with her and Fido for his walk and ride in the yellow motor and have all kinds of frilled dresses and feathered hats--" He was imitating Aunt Josephine's voice in a very funny manner that made Keineth laugh.

Keineth thought very quickly of all the things she loved to do that she knew Aunt Josephine would not allow her to do, but she did not want to speak of them, for it might make her Daddy unhappy. Her father went on, more seriously:

"But I have another plan. I will tell you about It and you may choose between that and Aunt Josephine's." (Keineth suddenly felt very grown up.) "Coming up from Washington I ran into Mr. William Lee, an old friend of mine--a man I knew in college. I used to think the world of him.


Average Rating of 4 from 1 reviews: ****

Happy little Keineth Randolph lives an odd, sheltered life in New York City with her father and her French governess, but then her "Tante" must return to war-torn Europe and her father is ordered off on a yearlong secret mission. Keineth must choose between going to live with her stuffy Aunt Josephine or a family of complete strangers.

Although Keineth is an almost insufferably good little girl, her adventures in this cheery girls' book are lively and interesting enough to overcome that defect.
