Kessinger Publishing, Apr 1, 2004 - Juvenile Fiction - 220 pages
1916. A Thrushwood Book. This engaging classic tells the tale of a thin, pale 9-year-old orphan named Elizabeth Ann who is whisked away from her city home and relocated to a Vermont farm where her cousins, the dreaded Putneys, live. The Putneys are not as bad as her doting, high-strung Aunt Frances warns, however, and Elizabeth, who had been nurtured by her aunt like an overwatered sapling positively blooms under their breezy, earthy care.

This was such a great read aloud. We had some fantastic conversations about charity, family work, and resourcefulness because of Betsy's story. I'll definitely buy this one and read it again. Read full review
