Format: Paperback
This book is about small town life, and a lady who made a difference. Ella Bishop is the perfect example of devoted daughter and friend, she takes care of her senile mother, she raises her cousin's (who stole her own fiancee) daughter after her parents die, and she teaches school for an extremely long time, influencing the lives of many students, not without heartache, of course, but she remains strong through it all. This was amore solemn book, I thought, it wasn't as upbeat and lively as 'The Cutters', but it was a good book, nonetheless. Miss Bishop is an upstanding citizen, who is never afraid and always willing to help, and we should learn from her example.

John Adams once describe Thomas Jefferson as having a "felicity of expression" in his writing. That is how Aldrich's writing strikes me. I enjoy Aldrich's descriptions and expressions very much. This book is a little grittier than her other novels as the characters face more morally challenging issues. However, I find it very uplifting and as our public library is starting to consign Aldrich's books to the storage area, I am delighted to own a copy so I can visit Miss Bishop whenever I wish.
The copy I purchased is a clean, great condition, hardback size, paperback.

Refreshingly old fashioned -- yet human nature and human feelings are never out of fashion. A rich story of a genuine pioneer professor. An American Good By Mr Chips.
