Description:
Quote from 'Boston Herald' - There is something of Louisa May Alcott in the way Mrs Abbott unfolds her narrative and develops her ideals of womanhood.'

Patricia Everett is a privileged young girl but unhappy because her mother and sister have gone away to Florida for her sister's health, and she can't even go to school because of an epidemic of measles.
However, Pat receives a surprising companion, the war is raging in Europe and Renee, a French war orphan, comes to stay. Both girls are the same age and become fast friends.
Then Aunt Pen (Mr Everett's sister but much younger) comes to look after the girls and attend to their education. Pat becomes friendly with Sheila, who lives across the street and is this introduced to Girl Scouts.
An awesome book with a touch of romance, too.

There is a signature in pencil inside front cover.
The illustrations have come loose.
There are some small brown patches throughout the book, nothing to obscure the printing. Please click here to ask a question
