THE HIDDEN PEARLS by Virginia Frances Voight


Email this review


The pearls (which Emily's ancestor Betsy Prindle' had conceled from the Indians, before dying in the wilderness) remain pretty well hidden indeed, since the first half of this account of her summer with her Aunt Emily in Maine is full of home ec-citement baking bread, sewing, raspberrying, etc. But she does meet two boys (Dave--romance; Chet--turns out to be a wrong 'un) camping nearby, and Miss Voight's story, gets aroung to the pearls in a few accelerated closing chapters: they were hidden in the portrait of the original Betsy; they are stolen from her by Chet; etc. etc. Only for compleat add-a-romance-mystery collections.
