ll find anywhere, and he's well off too, ain't he? Ma said she heard he kept a horse and lived right in the village too, not as how he needed to keep one to get anywhere, either. That's what I call luxury--a horse to ride around with. And then Mr. What's-his-name? I can't remember. Oh, yes, Spafford.

Everybody knows her. She croaks! Ma says Kate's got her nest feathered well if ever a girl had. My! I only wish I had the same chance!"

I own a hardback copy of this book. It is a moving, very sweet story of a young girl who loves innocently and completely. Written in a time when Honor and obligation to your family truly meant something.

Grace Livingston Hill writes lovely stories of a time long gone. I recommend this book.
