This book is one my daughter and I enjoyed quite a bit. It tells about the gradual maturing of Elizabeth Ann (who has been sheltered and babied her entire life) into Betsy, an independent and happy child who begins to understand that life does not have to be overwhelming. All this is accomplished in a way that is not preachy or overly sentimental. I would highly recommend reading this book.
