Excerpt

forehead, and as he drew his handkerchief down from his eyes he saw Peace standing before him, holding a platter in her extended arms while she surveyed the result of his labor with approving eyes.

"You've done splendid!" she breathed, enthusiastically. "The last tramp who cut wood for us piled it up so it looked like there was an awful lot, but after he was gone we found he had heaped it around a big hole in the middle and there wasn't hardly any split.

****.

I read the Peace Greenfield books as a little girl. I loved them, especially Peace and little Allie.

This series of books were a treasure when I read them as a child. They belonged to my mother and my sister and I adored them, crying and laughing and sharing the adventures of Peace Greenfield and her sisters. I've looked for them before and found, sadly that they were out of print. I will access these if only to remember and cry and laugh again.

This book is in the "young readers" category. I am by no means a young reader, do not let this category put you off.

The book was a delight from start to finish.
