Overview

DADDY-LONG-LEGS and its sequel, DEAR ENEMY, follow the lives of two orphan girls, Jerusha Abbott and her classmate Sallie McBride through a series of letters. In DADDY-LONG-LEGS, Jerusha "Judy" Abbott has been brought up in an old-fashioned orphanage but excels in her schoolwork, particularly writing. At age 18, however, she finds herself working at the orphanage with few prospects. Her life changes when a mysterious benefactor offers to pay her way through college, requiring only that she write him a letter a month. Addressed to Mr. John Smith, she faithfully writes the letters, never to receive a reply.

In DEAR ENEMY, Judy Abbott's classmate and best friend Sally McBride grows from a young woman into a successful mature woman. Sally sends her letters to Judy Abbott; Jervis Pendleton, Judy's husband and the president of the orphanage where Sallie is filling in until a new superintendent can be installed; and the orphanage's doctor, the bitter Robin 'Sandy' McRae, whom Sallie addresses as "Dear Enemy."

The novels explore a number of themes relevant to early 20th century America, including the changing role of women, orphans, divorce, and social work. Includes an active table of contents for easy navigation.

    Excellent book but badly formatted and missing illustrations.

    This is a great book, which I love, but this Nook version has no internal structuring (not even a page link to the second book), and is completely missing all the illustrations, of which there are many in the original and which are part of the story.
