Eight Cousins

Our rating: ****

An orphaned girl, Rose, has been living with her great aunts for a little while, and is now awaiting the arrival of her uncle (who is also to be her guardian) with a little trepidation. Her main worry is her cousins: seven boys. Having lived all her life with a father who was an invalid, she is not sure what to expect. Once she is barely settled in with Uncle Alec, she finds that her uncles’ and aunts’ opinions on bringing up a little girl differ greatly. Will Rose blossom or wither under the change?

I know, I know. That was a bad pun. I apologize. (Lopsided grin of the “I-know-it-was-bad-but-I’m-still-not-going-to-take-it-out” sort). Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. Even though I categorized it under all ages, it might not be as enjoyable for someone, say, eleven years and under. (Of course, tastes and interests vary.) The seven cousins are great! And the aunts! (Laughing) There are six of them, each with different traits. Some of them, like Aunt Myra kept me in stiches through the whole thing. A great book. Excuse the previous pun and enjoy.
