Hours Fourteen and Fifteen
Reading Understood Betsy by Dorothy Fisher
This is about a little girl who lives with her two aunts - they are very overprotective of her and she grows to be timid, frightened, coddled, and sickly. One of the aunts gets sick and so they send her to spend some time with her other aunts and cousins on a farm. She is treated much differently there - she is expected to help out and to be responsible for herself - and she learns some independence and self confidence.
I'm loving this book so far! It's very pithy for a children's novel. I want to buy a copy to have around for my own children in the future.
