PENNY ROSE by Mebane Holoman Burgwyn


Email this review


Mrs. Burgwyn has written two good books for younger readers (Lucky Mischief and River Treasure) but this one of a Virginia girl and her struggles for her inheritance and emotional happiness, is a little on the sentimental side. For Penny Rose Wilder, daughter of a hard working and intelligent farmer, the best thing that could happen would be to have young Dr. Jeffrey Graham, heir of the rich neighboring Windsor estate, fall in love with her. But she must go through hard work on her own farm after her father's accidental death- fall in love with another neighbor Dan Stevens, who helps her through difficulties- and discover the mystery behind the long pondered financial rivalries between Windsors and Wilders (they started when Penny's father refused to marry Jeff's mother) before she can look Jeff straight in the eye and say no to his belated offer. Too much F.F.V.
