Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 1915. Webster was a grandniece of Mark Twain.

She wrote a number of short stories and novels for younger readers including her most famous work, Daddy Long-Legs. In Dear Enemy, Sallie McBride, the dear friend of Judy Abbot (heroine of Daddy Long-Legs), accepts an appointment as superintendent of an orphanage and promptly embarks on a program of much needed reform. The book, while touching on serious social issues, does so in a delightfully written and entertaining manner. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Jean Webster (1876-1916) was an American novelist, playwright, and social activist. During the start of the twentieth century (1912), Webster wrote "Daddy-Long-Legs", an epistolary, best-selling novel that she developed into a play. It met with much success, and the characters were sold as dolls, the money from which going to charities to help fund orphan adoptions. In 1915, Webster published the sequel, "Dear Enemy". Written in the same epistolary form, "Dear Enemy" met with best-selling acclaim as well. The novel is unique in that the story is propelled by crude, stick-figure animations, drawn by Webster herself, that add a whimsical air to the social issues addressed, the care of orphans and women's life choices in particular. Sadly, Webster died of childbirth fever in 1916, just a year after the success of "Dear Enemy".
