OMG this book is amazing! It's the kind of book I would right a fan letter about, only I can't because it was written in 1912. It was set around that time, so it's a real perspective of what that world was like back then. I adored it all! I won't spoil the end, but I will tell you it was just as amazing as the rest of the story, if not more! You will not be sorry if you read this!

This is a classic but easy to read -- a very sweet story that I recommend to anyone!
Did you know that Mark Twain was the author's great-uncle?
Also, there is a sequel to this story called "Dear Enemy".

It was a joyful read with humor and why I miss snail mail.

I really enjoyed this book. Read it in less than 4 hours. I loved the Mary Pickford silent film based on this book as well.

18-year-old orphan Jerusha Abbott is sent to college by a mysterious trustee of the John Grier Home (the orphanage). All she has to do is send him a detailed letter once a month telling him about her life and studies. She can never know who he is, and he'll never write back.
But of course . . . stuff happens!
