Book Excerpt: 
. . .The last three words would have been almost inaudible to ears less sensitively alert than were Alice Greggory's. For a moment after the words were uttered, only the clock's ticking broke the silence; then, with an obvious effort, the man roused himself, as if breaking away from some benumbing force that held him.

"Alice, I don't need to tell you, after what I said the other night, that I loved Billy Neilson. That was bad enough, for I found she was pledged to another man. But to-day I discovered something worse: I discovered that I loved Billy Henshaw—another man's wife. And—I ran. But I've come back. I'm going to face the thing. Oh, I'm not deceiving myself! This love of mine is no dead tiger skin. It's a beast, alive and alert—God pity me!—to destroy my very soul. But I'm going to fight it; and—I want you to help me."

The girl gave a half-smothered cry. The man turned, but he could not see her face distinctly. Twiligh. . . Read More

Miss Billy is engaged to Bertram Henshaw. Their engagement has just been announced. But life gets busy and the couple struggles in their relationship. Bertram is painting the portrait of a young, wealthy, beautiful woman--very temperamental, always changing her mind on what pose suits her best. B...more

I first read this book maybe ten years ago? I liked the whole trilogy that time. I decided to re-read them last week and have gone through the first two. I found the first a bit tiresome, sadly. This one was a bit perkier and made me feel better about revisiting the series.

Anyhow, onto the book i...more

In this sequel to "Miss Billy," a series of insecurities, lead to misunderstandings and mis-communications between Billy and her fiance, Bertram.

I found the way the conflict was played out to be very deftly handled. There was no giant leap to conclusions on either character's part (those annoy...more

Another cute story from Eleanor H. Porter. I am enjoying listening to the books written by her. They are old fashioned and fun. I don't have to worry about being surprised by foul language or topics that are in poor taste. Just sweet innocent fun and some silly human behaviors when it comes to th...more

This book was better than the first, mostly because the characters seemed better developed and more engaging. There was a bit too much drama, but overall I like Billy well enough to carry it through. While the Miss Billy books haven't been as charming as the Pollyanna books, they have still been...more

So many books from this time period can be summed up with, "Geez, why don't these people just TALK to each other??" The only character who communicates openly is Kate, but she's also an irksome busybody. If people would just say what they mean...well, I guess there'd be fewer books like this in t...more

The second of the three Miss Billy books is just as sweet and innocent as the first one. I enjoyed reading it, but by the end, I was getting quite frustrated with people being at cross-purposes, both Billy and Bertram and the added misunderstandings between Arkwright and Alice. I still enjoy seei...more

Read the first book, curious to find out what happened next. Plotting is similar to the first one. But still good fun. The english is much easier than expected perhaps because it's not as old as say the Austen novels. Good to 'see' old Boston in these books.

The 2nd book in the "Billy" series, this one has got it's share of humour as well. I liked seeing all the characters again, and meeting new ones, and I enjoyed watching Billy with her lovable ventures of giving "sugar plums" to those who need a friend or word of encouragement. However, I did get...more

Most of Porter's books were written for a younger audience and you can tell, but they are still fun to read. The romance is clean and fun.
