"Winona adds a dash of spice to every scene she inhabits."--Melissa Wiley

"There are three authors whose body of work I have reread more than once over my adult life: Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and Maud Hart Lovelace."--Anna Quindlen

"I reread these books every year."--Laura Lippman

Back cover copy

Carney's House Party In the summer of 1911, Caroline "Carney" Sibley is home from college and looking forward to hosting a monthlong house party--catching up with the old Crowd, including her friend Betsy Ray, and introducing them to her Vassar classmate Isobel Porteous. Romance is in the air with the return of Carney's high school sweetheart, Larry Humphreys, for whom she's pined all these years. Will she like him as well as she once did? Or will the exasperating Sam Hutchinson turn her head?

Winona's Pony Cart More than anything in the world, Winona Root wants a pony for her eighth birthday. Despite her father's insistence that it's out of the question, she's wishing so hard that she's sure she'll get one--at least, that's what she tells her friends Betsy, Tacy, and Tib. . . .
