The Little Colonel is back, and this time she’s a maid of honor. Her friend Eugenia is getting married, and the whole wedding party has come to stay at Lloyd’s house. The old fashioned term for this kind of extended sleep-over/get-together is a “house party.” Reading Ms. Johnston’s version of the delightful events leading up to the wedding is like traveling back to the time of slow summer days and long, white cotton dresses.
In this story readers will be introduced to Mary Ware, the wild girl from Arizona who has traveled all the way to Kentucky for the festivities. Her untamed western ways make her an endearing character. Handsome young men, moonlit boat rides, and evening walks through the woods delight Lloyd and her dear friends as much as they do the reader. Perhaps Lloyd will even find the beginnings of love.
