Overview

A tender love-story about 113 orphans and a dour young Scotch surgeon who had forgotten how to smile, and of Sallie McBride, of "Daddy-Long-Legs" fame, who has a tremendous time teaching them how to laugh again. Sequel to Daddy Long-legs.
If you've read Daddy-Long-Legs or even seen the film with Fred Astaire and Leslie Caron, you're sure to find Jean Webster's novel, Dear Enemy, delightful! As a sequel, this book-of-letters describes the adventures of Judy's best friend from college, Sally McBride, who reluctantly takes control of Judy's old orphanage The John Grier Home, a cranky Scottish doctor and over an hundred orphans! A delicious sense of humour and up-beat spirit for fun makes Sally an easily lovable heroine, whose capers you'll enter into as willingly as Sadie Kate does. The love story that sneaks in at the end is neither trite nor unwelcome, but finishes the story leaving us all wanting more.

That's how I'd describe this book.It deals with serious subjects lightly and with humor.Even if it was written many years ago it applies perfectly to our time!Personally,it's my favourite book and I'd advise everyone to read it.

You can tell the first part of the description was written 100 years ago by an anglo publisher. Everyone nowdays has the sense not to call Scotts after bottles of whiskey.

This book was exactly like Daddy Long Legs, with some new characters and a new setting, sort of. The plot was the same. The story was ok, not horrible, not wonderful. Definately predictable.
