Daddy Long LegsDear Enemy Kindle ½ Daddy Long

One of the great novels of American girlhood Jean Webster's Daddy Long Legs 1912 follows the adventures of an orphan named Judy Abbott whose letters to her anonymous male benefactor trace her development as an independent thinker and writer Its sequel Dear Enemy 1915 also told in letters follows the progress of Judy's former orphanage now run by her friend Sallie McBride who struggles to give her young charges hope and a new life Full of irrepressible female characters that both recall Alcott's Jo March and anticipate the popular heroines of contemporary literature Webster's novels are witty heartfelt and delightfully modern

    I first read this book as a translation when I was a teenager I loved Judy and daddy long legs but that was only the first book then I found out there's a sequel and i had to have it I got it and i read it and never had I been touched so deeply the only other writer who does that to me is Charlotte Bronte and Jean Webster is a true disciple I can't explain the softness of the feelings she has me feel she makes my eyes well up talking about the mundane things she breaks my heart out of sheer love I feel for the characters she makes she makes me relive all the romance of all the centuries and so when I got this book as a gift in English I couldn't contain myself I rushed home to read it and because of how much I love it I did myself the pleasure of reading it all out loud I had to see that I love these words at 30 as much as I loved them at 13 and I did actually i love every word i love the fact that it's an epistolary novel how Sallie sits down to write her heart out before it implodes with emotions I think I had to do the same
