Another book down in my quest to re-visit the old lesser known works of LMA that I loved as a kid and as an adult, still muster up some warm feelings for. I never became of bosom friend of any of LMA's characters in the way I did with the works of Lucy Maud Montgomery, but still, being a good American, I have to stick up for them. It was pleasant to watch the Campbell clan grow from childhood in Eight Cousins to adults in Rose in Bloom. Some turned out well, others did not (the main message of this book: alcohol kills), but there are plenty of wholesome monologues and lessons on Christian charity to go around, just as in book one. A pleasant read, though decidedly less absorbing than it was when I was ten.
