This delightful book is actually by prolific children's author MILDRED LAWRENCE and not illustrator Mary Stevens as listed. Mary Stevens is a fabulous illustrator from the 50s and 60s who also did some of the Trixie Belden books.

I love Peachtree Island because of its warmth and charm and because Cissie, like Anne of Green Gables, finds a home at last on a farm where she can blossom - pun intended! It is sweetly old-fashioned and depicts a lifestyle and community no longer to be found. I enjoyed

The description above wouldn't have captured my attention, but this one I found first did: "When nine-year-old Cassie went to live with her uncle on Peachtree Island, all she knew about him was that he was forgetful. She soon discovers that he always forgets the right things and remembers the things that will make life pleasant for a little girl."
I enjoyed this simple book so much as a child that I tracked it down as an adult. It has survived years of the quarterly cullings that keep my books from crowding everything else out of the house. :)
My sister and I both loved this title by Mildred Lawrence, as well as Sand in Her Shoes and Indigo Magic.
