liked it

This book was a nice easy read that was pleasant on the brain. There was a lot of fluff – little stories that didn’t take much thinking or effort to understand. I was a little frustrated that the author didn’t address the conflict of Wint and Kate until the very last 2 chapters of the book, especially as it was so obvious throughout the rest of it. In her defense, she did have Helene as a narrator. There was a great deal of humor when it came to Helene’s antics. She was a pleasant mixture of Anne Shirley, Laura Ingalls, and any one of the girls from the Betsy Tacy books. Anyone remember those?
