Product Description:

When Elizabeth Ann is orphaned as an infant, Aunt Frances swoops in to save her from all harm - and most especially from the dreaded Putneys, their rough New England cousins. For the first nine years of her life, Aunt Frances coddles, shelters, and coos over Elizabeth Ann until she is one pale, thin, nervous little girl. Unfortunate circumstances force Elizabeth Ann to be sent away, and with no other choice, where can she go except to the one place Frances has wanted so desperately to keep her away from? Once she recovers from the initial shock of her new country lifestyle, Elizabeth Ann (or Betsy as she is called by her no-nonsense northeastern relatives,) comes to enjoy her exciting new life. Then one day, an unexpected letter comes from Aunt Frances stating that she will be coming to take Elizabeth home. Now Betsy must make a difficult decision: return with Aunt Frances to avoid hurting the only mother she's ever known, or remain with her dear Putneys on their beloved farm? (This is an abridged version of Understood Betsy with 140 pages. See index for original.) ~ Rachel P.

We personally own a lot of these books. Many of them are among our children's all-time favorites. That's saying a lot, since my children are voracious readers. There's such variety in this line - they run the gamut from biography to fantasy, but consistently enrich. It is indisputable that every book you read becomes a little part of you. Knowing this, we want to be careful not to fill our children's heads and hearts with objectionable, disturbing or useless material. Many of our customers are Christian homeschoolers, as we are. Even among this group, parents differ in the degree of restriction or criteria they apply in selecting materials they consider appropriate for their children, depending upon their particular convictions in this area. However, we feel confident that even the most convicted parent would have no qualms about this thoroughly Christian series. While books in the Light Line have a "strong Christian message," they are not "preachy." Rather, they skillfully entertain while presenting that message, with vivid characters and strong, exciting story lines. The biographies are among the best my children have read - they have been particularly stirred by With Daring Faith, the story of missionary Amy Carmichael. Series are listed first in each section, followed by single books listed alphabetically.

So disappointing! Why abridge a book which is fine to begin with? I did not realize this was an abridged version when I ordered it and was extremely vexed when we began reading and noticed the slight changes all throughout We will have to return and reorder
