ittle while since we were at home--and then it seems a long, long, long time."

"You've been living with your uncle since?" asked Miss Drayton, gently.

"Yes. Uncle Carey. Where is he? I do want Uncle Carey so bad." The child's voice trembled.

"Don't worry, dear. We'll find him," said Miss Drayton, as they left the dining-room.

The captain, who had kept his eyes on the little party, anticipated Miss Drayton's questioning. Drawing her aside, he explained the situation.

I'll send a wireless to New York. The stewardess will take care of the little girl."

Good, not overly- sentimental story of a young orphan girl and her doll Honey-Sweet. We first meet her as she's abandoned on a ship bound for Europe by her uncle, who's hiding from the police. From there, she's "adopted" by a kind woman and has a nice life for awhile, but it's not meant to last.

Not too tragic, but not too unrealistically sunny. This orphan girl is someone you can care about. I think that both children and adults will enjoy this book.
