Still a good book
In the middle of the pack.
It is a clean and inspiring story where family relationships are very important.
Mac was the best. I must say that I did not like most of the male characters - the worst one being uncle Alec who sounded like a woman. Rose's voice made her sound childish which made me dislike her at times.
The book is quite moving.
This is an old fashioned book that may sound preachy to younger audiences. I read this book when I was 7 or 8 years old and loved it. This time I felt it was a bit wordy. I still recommend it highly.
A follow up to Eight Cousins
Good innocent entertaining book. Rose was introduced in Eight Cousins. At the end of that book she and her friend/maid left for a continental tour with her uncle. In this book Rose and her friend return and they and most of the cousins are now grown up. The families are very close and Rose is particularly close to two of her male cousins. Her friend/maid is very close to another one of Rose's cousins. The book is entertaining but I must admit it is a little too much goody goody preaching toward the end. I know that being good is admirable, but it can be a little tedious too. It is also very class conscious, which was typical of the times in which the story is set but difficult to understand in today's world.
Barbara Caruso is a wonderful talent and she narrates this book perfectly.
