Publisher's Summary

Aunt Crete has spent a lifetime of toil catering to the needs of her family, especially her waspish sister, Carrie, and social-climbing niece, Louella. When a telegram from a nephew from out west announces his imminent arrival, mother and daughter hasten a trip to the shore to escape the "country cousin" who they are sure will shame them. Aunt Crete is left to welcome him with open arms, and young Donald soon realizes that his loving spinster aunt deserves her own vacation and that his other relatives deserve a comeuppance.
Grace Livingston Hill's update of the Cinderella story features a heroine who lives her life by the Golden Rule and who is justly rewarded.

Cute Story with a Great Moral

I've always liked Grace Livingston Hill books, they are a very light read. They do have the predictable good triumphs over evil aspect, but sometimes I just want to relax with this kind of book. I'm always leery of audio recordings of public domain books because they are usually obtained from Librivox and can sometimes be so bad they are not worth listening to, however this recording is very good. Vocal tone and inflection are just right.

If you are looking for a story where the ignored, seemingly less attractive person transforms into a "beautiful swan" and the bratty teen gets what's coming to her, this is a good book to read.
