cted a moment.

"I'll tell you what we'll do, Amarilly. I will buy one of the rugs that are to be on sale at the church fair this week. They have some very nice large ones. I will give it to you, and when yours is finished you may give it to me in return."

"Oh, thank you!" cried Amarilly, her countenance brightening, "But won't you need it afore I kin git this one done?"

Reminded me some of the Anne of Green Gables books. Heroine has red hair, very industrious, etc., It was a fast read, and the story line was very good, and kept your interest. Amarilly is the oldest of 8 children, being raised by a single mother. Amarilly is in a way, almost the mother to the children, and one of the principle bread winners. She wins friends whereever she goes, and finds fortune in ordinary things. It's a very endearing book, but it ended before I was ready. I would have liked to see what happened to her. Maybe there are more in a series? I'll read them if they should appear on this site.
