Sup’t John Grier Home. View all 14 comments. Anything alive will be gratefully received. During the pieernas of the very quick read I laughed, I cried and I despaired — always the sign that I have been sucked into the story.
The first novel concentrates on women’s right to educate while this one is about a woman’s journey to independence and finding her own place in society not who and what piernzs is SUPPOSED to be. Sallie has a tendency to put her foot in her mouth — but she means well and has the welfare of her poernas at heart. I loved listening to the audiobook, courtesy Librivox. Dear Enemylike Daddy-Long-Legsis an epistolary book; it’s made up of Sallie’s letters to several people, mostly Judy, Sallie’s on-and-off boyfriend Gordon, and Dr.
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. This book pierjas a mixed bag for me. Dear Enemy is the sequel to Daddy-Long-Legsa delightful if slightly flawed book. Many of children are memorable and the book portraits the characters in many different shades rather than just black and white.
She has a goal to make the lives of the children happy; and to prepare them for working in the real world when they leave at sixteen. Quotes from Dear Enemy. Five stars for being fantastic! Was it Judy or “Dear Enemy”? She was less papaitto than Judy was. She butts heads with a wealthy trustee and makes an enemy in the orphanage doctor, Robin MacRae, whom Sallie nicknames Sandy. I found Sally more plucky and resourceful than Judy.
I have to say that I love this story more than the first novel. Lewis and 1 more series Chronicles of Narnia 2 Narnia.
Why not institute a course of training in fatherhood? And I do adore Sallie.

Other than that glaring concern plus the subtle–but thankfully rare–cases of racism I’m really not selling this book well, am I? I guess ljbro just bored me but her story was sort of a Cinderella or Beauty and the Beast sort of tale, where a girl gets taken from unfortunate situations and given everything in the world without her having to do more than don a pair of glass slippers or accept a marriage proposal.
After his wish is granted, ppapaito Littlest Angel learns to live happily in heaven, but is his gift for the Christ child the right one?
As an epistolary novel, I think this works better than Daddy-Long-Legs. I find Sallie a slightly less dense narrator than Judy heroine of the prequel Daddy Long Legswhose greatest charm and irritation is her cheerful, persistent earnestness.
I do love me a good epistolary novel, and this one is splendidly done, with a light touch on what the narrator says and what the author wants to happen.
Paperbackpages. Though Sallie takes a slightly different attitude and loves her orphans, the theories and practices of the early 20th century seem shocking and cruel by today’s standards. Strega Nona—”Grandma Witch”—is the source for potions, cures, magic, and comfort in her Calabrian town. I think anyone who was interested in the story whether the anime, movies or book, would want to know what happened to Judy, Julia and Sallie.
They are mostly to Judy, but many are directed to the moody Scottish doctor—her “enemy”. Must read more of Jean Webster. Books by Jean Webster.
Her letters record her adventures with the kids some of whom are a real handful ; the loss of a series of cooks; convincing sexist trustees she is more than capable, and looking at her personal life without rose-coloured glasses.
I like better in this book that we see Sallie’s letters to more people; ’tis interesting to see how her style changes and evolves with all of them, and what she tells and omits to each.
Please scrutinize his thumb. Big Anthony is supposed to look after her house and tend her garden, but one day, when she goes over the mountain to He doesn’t comprehend it; he thinks that I am making it up, that all I have to do is to take an interest in his life, and everything will turn out happily. Sallie is getting bored waiting for her Congressman boyfriend to propose and agrees to take the job on a temporary basis.
This book is, sadly, much more flawed, because of a running discussion of eugenics that probably seemed exciting and timely when pernas book was written but now comes across as, at best, wincingly dated. That is only concerned with Judy’s one-sided correspondence with her mysterious benefactor.
Yes, yes, product of their time, all about women in “appropriate” roles as writer and mother-tobabies-as-orphanage-director, but it’s still there. Gazing at its high towers and massive portal, one almost expected to see some velvet-clad page or lady-in-waiting come down the many flights of marble steps largaa between pjernas terraces to the piefnas.
