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 pleasant reads. 3.5/5
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 seeing a glimpse of a different time period in American history, although it is quite obvious that this is an upper-class history.
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. Billy is occupied with a handful of things: first, planning the wedding of Cyril and Maria (the music teacher); second, writing or composing her own songs for publication: this time with a partner, "Mary [...]
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 itself. Billy's still fresh and fun and impulsive but kind. The secondary characters are interesting. Still a bit formulaic and after all the years had passed I, too, wound up wondering along with the oth [...]
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 meanwell, I guess there'd be fewer books like this in the world. :-)I enjoyed Billy as a character -- kind, well-meaning, good-hearted, impetuous, and lovable, she was very well-written (though I can't really say the same for how she's depicted in the third boo [...]
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 a bit annoyed, as there was a lot of confusion in this book--didn't people in the old days EVER communicate? And Billy used to be so good at speaking exactly what she thought, too! There was a tangled mi [...]
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 me), but a gradual build-up of small misunderstandings leading to a big problem. The insecurities were natural, and I felt the author showed nicely how "happily ever after" is something you have to activel [...]
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.
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.
