Instead, Rebecca will end up changing them.

I'm a 68-year-old male who never read Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm growing up. Maybe it was sold as a girls' book, or maybe it just never fell in my path. Anyway, I'm very glad to have finally met Rebecca and learned her story. It's no wonder it's a classic: excellent writing; strong characters, each one distinct from the others; a plot that never shies away from strong feelings, doubts, conflicts, self-inflicted suffering, mutual misunderstandings, and the inevitable role they all play in the development of a personality. I'll tell you how good I think the book is; I felt it could have been written by a young Jane Austen. If you've never read it, give yourself a treat. You won't be sorry.

Diverse well-realized characters, life lessons demonstrated with a light, sometimes amusing touch, and words of wisdom. This is a great comfort read on par with, if not better than, L.M. Montgomery, Jean Webster, Louisa May Alcott, the Five Little Peppers and the Pollyanna series. It kept me interested from first page to last because of the quality of the writing and I just enjoy trips back into time. My only regret is the lack of any kind of sequel unlike the previously mentioned works. (the same is true for one of her other novels, "Morther Carey's Chickens." It would have been lovely to see Rebecca's continued progress into maturity and what life may hold in store for her. (Although, in truth, it is made crystal clear that her final place will be as a teacher and the wife of Mr. Aladdin, her wealthy mentor, Adam Ladd.) Still, the journey there would have been a treat to read. Although some, looking at this relationship through modern eyes, might find it inappropriate, It was written with innocence and I found it charming. The book is concluded with her path pretty much set and the financial problems that beset her family pretty well solved. It does seem to me that if not Rebecca, the story of her brother John,destined to be a doctor, could have made a wonderful continuation.

I had always thought that this was a book for adolescents, however it didn't take long to realize that the vocabulary was far too advanced for a child to comprehend. On the other hand, the themes are a bit simplistic for an adult, so this book seems to straddle the divide between childhood and adulthood. There seem to be many illustrated adaptations of the novel that are probably more appealing to youngsters.

Nevertheless, I enjoyed reading about Rebecca's childhood from age 10 to about 18. She was sent away from the farm to live with her maiden aunts, Miranda and Jane, in the small town of Riverboro when her father died, leaving her mother impoverished and trying to raise 7 children alone. The aunts aren't at all wealthy, but certainly more prosperous that the family down on the farm.

Aunt Miranda is stern and unyielding, while Aunt Jane is far more gentle and kind. The sprightly, precocious Rebecca soon learns how to balance the two, and though they'd never admit it, she brings life and fun to their small home. She is a bright student and unusually perceptive of human interactions for such a young child. There isn't a lot of action in the novel; it mainly revolves around the small town life of school and church and the typical gossiping and meddling that happens in a small town. It reminded me of the early years of Anne of Green Gables. Rebecca endures trials and tribulations and triumphs but never loses her spirit and love of people and love of life.

I reread this classic children's book after 55 years mostly because I like to read mysteries and those books can be really dreadful and depressing. If you want something upbeat and sentimental, this book is a fine pick. It really is a story for children, containing the trials of a 10 year old sent to live with a couple of spinster (the book's word) aunts to help the old ladies and for educational opportunities. Rebecca is a good role model as she fights rebellious thoughts and slowly grows to understand one of the aunts' grim demeanor.

The book is a well written excellent portrait of rural life and life in small villages, the way it was in th late 1800s. It was quite refreshing to me to read this idyllic portrait of a life in which everyone is happy to share their lives and experiences with others - a far cry from modern life, at least to me.

The book could also be used as a teaching tool to start conversations about how opportunities for women have changed dramatically since then. Very sentimental and there is quite a bit of it that touches on Christianity and religious feeling, but.for me that did not detract.

There is nothing worse than coming across a book from your childhood that invokes memories of moonlight and magic only to find that time has dulled its' glow. Happily, this is not the case with this book!
Rebecca is as winsome as ever, managing the to endure the trials and joys of her childhood with resilient grace and fortitude. This book should be placed on required reading lists at schools! (Yes, I really do! :) )
If you haven't read it, throw yourself into the deep end with glee; you will not be disappointed! If you have had the pleasure of reading it before, it will revive your spirits!
