Ebook conversion is badly done.
Understood Betsy is a wonderful book for readers of all ages, and comes highly recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
However, this particular ebook version was clearly converted from a PDF, and has irregular line breaks and a few typos. It is free, but it would be a good idea to flick through a few pages before deciding to keep it.

Beautifully written charmer
Imagine my surprise when I used Barnes and Noble's "Book Browser" feature online, to select a novel for myself (I'm 46) that incorporated New England in the early 1900's and pioneering spirit and women adjusting to change...and saw Understood Betsy. Yes, a children's book I somehow missed, and I a voracious reader. Elizabeth Ann - Betsy - comes alive on these pages, and the book is so well written and evocative of the simpler, pure Vermont farm life, I didn't want it to end. I immediately bought one for my 10 year old niece for Christmas, and will start exploring Dorothy Canfield Fisher's other (adult!) work. What a treasure! What a jewel!Was this review helpful?
