CARNEY'S HOUSE PARTY by Maud Hart Lovelace

Email this review


An engaging and thoroughly likable story about Carney Sibley, one of the popular Betsy Tacy's friends in Deep Valley, Minnesota. Carney, home from Vassar for the summer following her Sophomore year, has a house-party of three friends,- two of the old high school crowd, one from Vassar. The situations, the discussions and the jokes are typical of college girls of any time, not too ""dated"" for the pre-World War I. The popular songs of the day, the parallels drawn to the Little Colonel's houseparty of beloved memory, give it a ""might-have-happened -to mother"" quality without slowing the pace, or dimming the quality. The happy banter, the picture of home-town friendships, the substantial family life- all are here in successful blend.
