Laid in the country north of Chicago, this is a girl's story of a mother, father and daughter who move out of the big city due to illness. Their next door neighbors are the most heavenly family who are absolutely broke, but full of courage and . Their kindness teaches the city folk how really to live and eventually breaks down the boring, superior attitude of the F.F.V. mother. The first part of the book is chiefly concerned with this metamorphosis, while the latter part is very exciting with the opening of Apple Pie Inn and the mystery surrounding young Beaver. A good yarn, well told, full of good sense plus excitement.
