    Wonderful find!

    Mary to her father, Marie to her mother, and Mary Marie to everyone else, is the first of her peers to experience divorce and having a six-month father. Written in the first person in an age appropriate style (Mary Marie is 12 when the book begins), as she matures, so does "her" writing. Read her story to the end!

    While a life long reader of Eleanor Porter, this was the first time I held Mary Marie in my hands. I was reminded of Just David, Miss Billy, and also Daddy Long Legs. Delighted to have discovered this treasure!

    This version is evidently a scanned and automatically formatted version of the classic. Formatting is readable, but there are mistakes on each page.
