Beverly of Graustark

George Barr McCutcheon

Book Overview: 

Beverly Of Graustark is the second book in the Graustark series. Lorry and his wife, the princess, made their home in Washington, but spent a few months of each year in Edelweiss. During the periods spent in Washington and in travel, her affairs in Graustark were in the hands of a capable, austere old diplomat–her uncle, Count Caspar Halfont. Princess Volga reigned as regent over the principality of Axphain. To the south lay the principality of Dawsbergen, ruled by young Prince Dantan, whose half brother, the deposed Prince Gabriel, had been for two years a prisoner in Graustark, the convicted assassin of Prince Lorenz, of Axphain, one time suitor for the hand of Yetive.

"'Ceptin' me, yo' highness. Ah'm as hungry as a poah man's dawg, an'—"

Written in 1904 it's a tale of a rich beautiful southern American girl who takes off for the foreign country o

A great adventure/romance, also worthy of a Disney Movie.

This book is yet another of my favorites. McCutcheon writes similar to Louisa May Alcott, so you need to be in the right mindset to begin this book. Once you start reading, you won't stop.

My grandma gave this to me when I was young...possibly because it has my name in the title. I know that coincidence made me think for the longest time that this was MY book in more than just ownership. I have fond memories of it.
