Publisher's Summary

This delightful sequel to Webster's Daddy Long-Legs centers on socialite Sallie McBride, who reluctantly agrees to become director of an orphan asylum. The asylum's benefactors, her friends Judy and Jervis Pendleton, insist she is just the person to institute the sweeping reforms the institution needs. The exuberant Sallie soon begins ruffling feathers of the staff, filling the children's lives with hope and love, and locking horns with the new Scotch doctor, the Dear Enemy of the title.

Good old fashioned tale

I loved Daddy Long Legs and appreciated a follow up story with Judy and this time Sally doing the writing. I love taking information from the story and seeing the history from the piece.

Uplifting

Well Jean Webster did it again! I just loved this book. I thought nothing can top Daddy long legs, that this one would be a let down but it’s right up there along side of it. It’s a must read!

Only For Eugenics Fans.......

What could have been a really charming sequel to Daddy Long Legs becomes something quite ugly, due to the frequent comments on how 'defective' children (deaf, epileptic, and mentally disabled) should be treated - ie. forced sterilisation, segregation from normal children, and even arsenic in the food!!! I know this was the period of time when eugenics were widely believed in, but to a 21st century listener, it is really disturbing and left a nasty taste in the mouth. Excellently narrated though.
