CHAPTER I

DELLA SPEAKS HER MIND


Della Wetherby tripped up the somewhat imposing steps of her sister's
Commonwealth Avenue home and pressed an energetic finger against the
electric-bell button. From the tip of her wing-trimmed hat to the toe
of her low-heeled shoe she radiated health, capability, and alert
decision. Even her voice, as she greeted the maid that opened the
door, vibrated with the joy of living.

"Good morning, Mary. Is my sister in?"

"Y-yes, ma'am, Mrs. Carew is in," hesitated the girl; "but--she gave
orders she'd see no one."

"Did she? Well, I'm no one," smiled Miss Wetherby, "so she'll see me.
Don't worry--I'll take the blame," she nodded, in answer to the
frightened remonstrance in the girl's eyes. "Where is she--in her
sitting-room?"

"Y-yes, ma'am; but--that is, she said--" Miss Wetherby, however, was
already halfway up the broad stairway; and, with a despairing backward
glance, the maid turned away.

In the hall above Della Wetherby unhesitatingly walked toward a
half-open door, and knocked.

"Well, Mary," answered a "dear-me-what-now" voice. "Haven't I--Oh,
Della!" The voice grew suddenly warm with love and surprise. "You dear
girl, where did you come from?"

This is 'Clean' reading! It would be very girl for Young Adults to read. It was a fun story but it skipped six years of Polyanna growing up!! Ms Porter delved into detail Polyanna's thirteenth year but other than stating she went to Europe for six years then returned to her home town. Granted, this would have been a very large book but, even better, it could have easily been made into two or more books, such as Anne of Green Gables. It was a delightful reminder of the much beloved story of "Pollyanna."

I've always loved this story but this particular free ebook has the usual scanning errors. Pollyanna is usually "PoUyanna" and so on. But you can read it fairly easily regardless. Still, I like the story enough I will probably invest in a good copy.

I am about half way through the book and so far it turning out to be a pretty good. So far Pollyanna has just gotten back from spending a winter with Mrs. Carew. Write more after I finish this book.
