Book Excerpt

rs to the company that owned the ship. She thought maybe the papers were wrong, about the ship sinking, but when the answers came back they said the same thing. The men who owned the ship which my father was captain of, said the vessel was lost and no one was saved. No more letters came from my father, and no more money. Then grandmother and I had to move away from the house where we were living, and had to go to a little house down by the dumps. It isn't nice there."

It is an excellent young person book still today, I remember getting my first bobsie twin hard cover in 1959. When I started reading the book, it was hard to put down, I kept wanting to know what was happening next.
