In the High Valley

Susan Coolidge

Book Overview: 

In the High Valley” is the fifth and last book of the popular “What Katy did” series by Susan Coolidge.
The story starts out with Lionel Young and his sister, Imogen who set out for the picturesque but remote High Valley (America), leaving their hometown Devonshire (England) behind.
Lionel wants to take the share in Geoffrey Templestowe’s cattle business.
Imogen, owing to her prejudices against America and the American way of life, finds it hard to adjust to life over there.
Clover Templestowe, now happily married and living in the High Valley, at first finds it very trying to get on with Imogen.
A lot of events ensure in the course of which we meet again with Rose Red, get news from Cousin Helen and of course meet Katy again… until it all finally ends in a lovely double wedding!

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Page_63" id="Page_63">[63] little frocks for her grandson, and a jacket of her own knitting, two pairs of knickerbocker stockings for Geoff, and for Clover a bit of old silver which had belonged to a Templestowe in the time of the Tudors,—a double-handled porringer with a coat of arms engraved on its somewhat dented sides. Clover, like most Americans, had a passion for the antique; so this present was sure to please.

"And you are really off to-morrow," said Isabel at the gate. "How I wish I were going too."

"And how I wish I were not going at all, but staying on with you," responded Imogen. "Mother says if Lionel isn't married by the end of three years she'll send Beatrice out to take my place. She'll be turned twenty then, and would like to come. Isabel, you'll be married before I get back, I know you will."

"It's most improbable. Girls don't marry in England half so easily as in America. It will be you who will marry, and set. . . Read More

The final volume of the five Carr Family stories in which Lionel and his sister Imogen join the small community in High Valley, where we are unsurprised to discover Elsie has married Clarence and the two couples, with their children, are all living happily under one roof. This is a story about ad...more

I have been a Katy fan since I was little, and a few months ago my lovely husband came home clutching "Clover" and "In the High Valley" - the two sequels that I had not read.

To be honest, they are not quite as engaging as the original three Katy books, and perhaps a little heavy on the religious...more

I can't believe she's done it again!

I was expecting this to be a continuation of Clover, especially as it's about the High Valley, but instead she's created another totally new story. I'm so impressed!

Starting in England and being in Imogene's perspective is so different and new. I know she'll ti...more

In which Susan M Coolidge ties up all the loose ends by way of two English siblings (she does sibling relationships very well). I'm not entirely convinced Miss Joanna Carr will settle properly in the High Valley - she seems more of a society girl than Clover or Elsie, but maybe I've misjudged her...more

This was the least enjoyable of the five books in the series. Maybe it was because the (nominal) main characters did not seem to be the subject of the book - rather the focus switched back and forth without any true protagonist, but also without managing to make me feel quite as involved in any o...more

Not as good as the other Katy books but a nice closure to the series.

It felt like i was being told about their lives rather than being pulled into their lives.

The sole purpose of this book was to marry off the remaining children. Whatever.

I loved the whole series, although this was perhaps my least favorite. I still enjoyed the book but it felt like the author was frantically trying to marry everyone off and tie it all up with a nice bow. I thought that there wasn't enough time and effort put into developing the relationships betw...more
