Elizabeth lives with her Aunt Harriet and Aunt Francis in the city. Her Aunt Francis is always there to make sure that Elizabeth isn't afraid of dogs, has someone to cry to about how school exams are horrid, and makes sure that she's always understood. But when Aunt Harriet gets sick, Elizabeth--now Betsy--goes to live on a Vermont Farm with Uncle Henry, Aunt Abigail and Cousin Ann. With their New England expressions and hard-working attitudes, Betsy isn't sure how to adjust--but as the seasons go on, she finds life much more exciting on the Putney farm than in the city. 140 pages, softcover. Ages 9-12. Abridged from the original book.
