Excerpt

ring a new coat, Edwin (of course he was Edwin!) fell behind a pace or two to study the effect, and softly clapped his hands in approval. It must be nice, Betty thought wistfully, to be engaged, and have someone who liked you the best of all, and brought you home chocolates and flowers! She was anxious to know who formed the other members of the household, but Jill said there was only an invalid mother, who said, "Go about as much as ever you can, my darling. Don't think about me! The young should always be happy;" and this was accepted by all as a natural and satisfactory explanation.

There were no children to be found in the whole length of the terrace. The landlords, no doubt, had too much regard for their white enamel and costly wall-papers to welcome tenants with large families.

****.

Spirited, 17-year-old Betty and her two sisters and two brothers grow up in a loving and affectionate family, make friends among the neighbors and have innocent adventures. In one such, Betty meets a troubled young man amid a fog, which changes her life forever.

The novel ends rather abruptly, considering the detail of the earlier chapters, but it's a pleasant read in a "Little Women" vogue.

****.

The Rendell girls from A Houseful of girls appear in this story and you find out what happened to them after that story ended.The foggy day/suicide aspect is alot like another book I've read.The end wasn't as complete as I'd have liked but it was still a good read.
