A Fair Barbarian
This is a charming and delightful story of young Octavia Bassett who unexpectedly arrives from America to visit her Aunt Belinda in the quiet and ever-so-proper town of Slowbridge, England. What follows is a thoroughly enjoyable tale of American brashness and straightforwardness clashing with English reserve and propriety with much to be learned on both sides. Fans of Jane Austen's writing may find Frances Hodgson Burnett's lighter and more modern work also to their taste. --Submitted by G McFall
