From the Better-Late Files: An Old-Fashioned Girl
Finally got around to An Old-Fashioned Girl, rather a bit later for Mitali's cuci mata reading.
Not much to add to the questions and critiques Gail Gauthier raised back in December, except to say this:
Despite all the heavy-handed Important Life Lessons in the book (and Polly's pronounced Pollyanna tendencies), I was totally hooked on the relationships between the characters. I had to find out if Polly and Tom were going to end up together, and if Fanny was ever going to get over herself.
And on a related note, I much preferred the second half of the story to the first.
