"Ethelyn," said Miss Morton, gently, "that isn't the right way to talk. I think—"

"Oh, never mind what you think," said Ethelyn, rudely, "you know the last time you preached to me, I nearly made mamma discharge you, and I'll do it for sure if you try it again."

Miss Morton bit her lip and said nothing, for she was a poor girl and had no wish to lose her lucrative position in the St. Clair household, though her ideas were widely at variance with those of her employers. But Patty's sense of justice was roused.

"Oh, Ethelyn," she said, "how can you speak to your teacher so? You ought to be ashamed of yourself."

"Oh, Miss Morton don't mind, do you?" said Ethelyn, who was really only careless, and had no wish to be unkind, "and it's true. I will have her sent away if she preaches at us, 'cause I hate it; but she won't preach any . . . Read More

I inherited the Patty Fairfield collection from my great aunt Alice and it is one of my most prized possesions. I reread all the Patty books every year, I learned all about a sense of proportion and being a true friend from Patty. I love to be transported to New York pre-WW1...to be there for all...more

Really fun book, Patty was a very believable character with flaws. I loved the diferents Aunts houses though it seems improbable that they all came from the same family yet all got a VASTLY diferent outlook on life. Over all a very fun read, I can't wait for the next book!

After reading a bunch of books with content that made me squirm, I needed something I knew would just be enjoyable. So, I picked up this old book that I had found. I enjoyed this book about a 14 year old that is sent to visit four different families during the course of the year to learn how to r...more

I hate officially abandoning a book--I'm more than half way through I should just finish it. Oh Carolyn Wells! Is this how you write, was I just foolishly nostalgic about reading your Two Little Women series as a child?!

Patty Fairfield is a pretty, well-mannered, graceful, thoughtful, smart, but...more

If you liked Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott, you will most assuredly enjoy this book. It's not heavy on plot, but is fairly engaging anyway. It's about a young girl who is going to spend a year with four of her different relatives in turn. Then when she is reunited with her father, they will...more

This gem was found in a collection of old books passed down from generation to generation in my husband's family. Written at the turn of the twentieth century, this is a charming introduction to Patty Fairfield--a 14 year-old girl whose mother passed away when she was little and whose father ador...more

This is the first book in an entire series devoted to telling the story of Patty Fairfield, a girl in the early 1900s. These books were passed from my grandmother to my mother and now to me and so I enjoy them more for their sentimental value than the actual stories. If you are looking for a fluf...more

Excellently written. Interesting story that also leaves you with something and provokes the reader to thought. I felt like I was with Patty with each of her four aunts and their families, and I learned along with her. The characters are very well done, even if a few of the supporting characters m...more

Old-school "improving" book for girls. Fourteen year-old Patty -- a widower's daughter -- stays with four different families over the course of a year. Her father warns her the families are "out of proportion" in some way, and should serve as instructive examples. All are pleasant to Patty, but t...more
