Dear Enemy, the wonderful sequel, is set after Daddy-Long-Legs, where Jerusha is given the orphanage where she grew up. She enlists her best friend from college (whom we are introduced to in Daddy), Sally, to run the orphanage. Sally, a flighty society girl, is completely changed as she learns to love her orphans and the new life she has chosen to lead.
Both of them are romantic, fun and thoughtful, without the preachy-ness of some of the other girls novels published around the same time.
Best part is that BOTH books are published in this one volume - which is a great deal (and saves room on my already overflowing bookshelf). Footnotes in the back of the book help define some of the terminology/setting of the era.
This is a classic that I read as a child, and I'm so happy to have found it again!

A new all-time favorite for me, I think. I actually ordered the print version after reading the Kindle one, which I don't do unless I really love a book.Published 15 months ago by Lyn
I read this book as a young girl and it was one of my favorites. How great to have it on my Kindle, so I can read it whenever I want.Published 22 months ago by Patricia Bearden
I read Dear Enemy until it fell apart as a child. My mother threw it away and I thought I would never have another copy. How lucky I found both books together. Read morePublished on June 15, 2010 by Teresa H. Luther
