Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (Wiggin)

Book Reviews
Beautiful, warm and satisfying.
Mark Twain


May I thank you for Rebecca?... I would have quested the wide world over to make her mine, only I was born too long ago and she was born but yesterday.... Why could she not have been my daughter? Why couldn't it have been I who bought the three hundred cakes of soap? Why, O, why?
Jack London (letter to Wiggin, 1904)


Another title celebrating a century marker, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin...reveals a lively, generous spirit in the heroine who leaves her home to live with her two elderly aunts.
Publishers Weekly


Rebecca is an unforgettable character. Rebecca is someone you want to get to know, and hate to leave at the end of the book. Young girls will enjoy reading about her adventures as well as her humorous and extroverted personality. This story is 100 years old, but readers can still connect to it today. Her story is set in the late 1800's. Rebecca leaves her home at Sunnybrook farm to live with her two older aunts. Although it is difficult at times, Rebecca tries desperately to fit in at the brick house. This story tells of her efforts.
