I started reading this series when my mother introduced it to me at the age of 10. I have loved it ever since and it is a constant on my re-read list. Is anybody out there curious what happened to Tony? He was such an important part of Betsy's life . . . and then he just went away.

Deb | 6 comments All the BT characters were pretty much based on real people. Tony was based on a boy named Mike Parker. Mike's life was a bit difficult. He died of Bright's disease in his 30s. Maud did not write about his later life, probably, to protect his memory. See the Betsy-Tacy Companion by Sharla Scannell Whalen to find out all about the books and the characters....

There is a large and lively mail list full of Maud-L lovers too... You should be able to find a link from one of the above sites....
