Excerpt

But Beth is way out in Ohio, and we don't know whether she can go or not."

"I'll telegraph her, and find out," said Uncle John.

"Do it to-day," suggested the Major.

"I will."

"And to-morrow you must see Louise," added Patsy. "I'm not sure she'll want to go, dear. She's such a social butterfly, you know, that her engagements may keep her at home."

"Do you mean to say she's engaged?" asked Mr. Merrick, aghast.

"Only for the parties and receptions, Uncle. But it wouldn't surprise me if she was married soon. She's older than Beth or me, and has a host of admirers."

In this second book of the series, the three cousins and their Uncle John go to Italy, arriving at Naples just as Mt. Vesuvius erupts. Then, they visit Sicily, where brigands kidnap Uncle John, an incident the author's foreword claims is based on true events.

It's far more exciting than the first book, with interesting details about early-20th-century Italy.
