This is a very charming book, and a great read. Very quaint picture of life in 1912.
Some favorite quotes:"In the present day Hallow Eve is the proper time for all sorts of frolics…"
"All went into the big living-room with its many symbolic decorations; they roasted marshmallows and chestnuts, told stories and did such stunts as separating peas from beans, with eyes blindfolded. A prize was given the one who had the most beans in ten minutes."
"After refreshments all joined a jolly game of “pussy wants a corner.”"
