BLUE WILLOW by Doris Gates


Email this review


The blue willow plate that had belonged to her grandmother was about the only beautiful and stable thing in Janey Larkin's life -- to it she clung as her father and stepmother moved from place to place following the crops like the other pickers. She is overjoyed when at last they can live up to the blue willow plate by settling down -- in a real house with a real school to go to. Not original or outstanding, but a pleasant story, with its setting of the San Joaquin valley very well handled, and the people made very real. By the author of Sarah's Idea.
