      She had never breathed a word of it before to a human creature, for there was no one who would have understood. Her mother helped her into the stage coach, deposited a bundle and a bouquet of lilacs beside her, superintended the "roping on" behind of an old hair trunk, and finally paid the fare, counting out the silver with great care. When I say Randall's Farm, do you see how it looks? Cobb, that you had to swallow lumps in your throat when you looked at her, and little cold feelings crept up and down your back.

      Rebecca is the second-oldest of seven children. Cobb curiously. One of seven children, Rebecca is sent to live with two spinster aunts after her father dies. Early career[ edit ] Inhoping to ease Albion Bradbury's lung disease, Kate's family moved to Santa Barbara, California, where Kate's stepfather died three years later. As the novel begins, the family is barely scraping by three years after the father's death. Love of Nature Rebecca is portrayed as an artistic soul who finds beauty in everything, particularly nature.

      Notably, she once met the novelist Charles Dickens. Twins very often don't live to grow up, and triplets almost never--did you know that, Mr. There was no indecision or delay in the establishment of their relations; Rebecca's heart flew like an arrow to its mark, and her mind, meeting its superior, settled at once into an abiding attitude of respectful homage. They're ivory.

Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm book

We haven't met any people yet, but I'm kind of disappointed in the cows; they don't look so little as I hoped they would; still brightening they don't look quite as big as if we were down side of them, do they?

It was trimmed with a twist of buff ribbon and a cluster of black and orange porcupine quills, which hung or bristled stiffly over one ear, giving her the quaintest and most unusual appearance.

A few days afterward she saw the black-covered book on Miss Maxwell's desk and knew that the dreaded moment of criticism had come, so she was not surprised to be asked to remain after class. She pressed Mr. Randall instead sends them Rebecca, "a thing of fire Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm book spirit".

Being answered in the affirmative, she nodded to a child who was eagerly waiting for the answer, and who ran towards her as if she feared to be a moment too late.

I'm going to be a painter like Miss Ross when I get through school. Much of the book is focused on her studies as she progresses through the tiny country school of Riverboro and then goes on to excel at the large high school in Warham. There hasn't been any since Mira, and she's three. She was friendly enough with Emma Jane and Rebecca, but grew less and less intimate as time went on.

The handle is scarred, you see. How he makes us understand! Month after month I toil on, opening oyster after oyster, but seldom finding a pearl. Trying a different Web browser might help. He said the people and cows looked like flies. She had a habit of confiding her conquests to less fortunate girls and bewailing the incessant havoc and damage she was doing; a damage she avowed herself as innocent of, in intention, as any new-born lamb.

She bore it for a week-- seven endless days of absence from the beloved object, whom she could see only in the evenings when both were busy with their lessons.

Why don't you put up your parasol? They are packed away in a box in the attic. As she turned the horse's head towards home she rose to her feet for a moment, and shading her eyes with her hand, looked at a cloud of dust in the dim distance. I don't eat nothin' till I get to Milltown; then I get a piece o' pie and cup o' coffee.

Being answered in the affirmative, she nodded to a child who was eagerly waiting for the answer, and who ran towards her as if she feared to be a moment too late. It does not take much of this sort of thing to wreck an ordinary friendship, so before long Rebecca and Emma Jane sat in one end of the railway train in going to and from Riverboro, and Huldah occupied the other with her court.

There was one passenger in the coach — a small dark-haired person in a glossy buff calico dress. Randall refused to consider any improvement in their financial condition as a possibility.

He was to have good schooling in return for his care of the horse and cow and barn, and what was still more dazzling, the use of the old doctor's medical library of two or three dozen volumes.Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm is a children’s novel written by Kate Douglas Wiggin, published in A perpetual favorite and considered a classic of American children’s literature, the book also captures a period in American history that is long past, making it a charming bit of time travel for modern readers.

Read Chapter XXI: The Sky Line Widens of Rebecca Of Sunnybrook Farm by Kate Douglas Wiggin. The text begins: The time so long and eagerly waited for had come, and Rebecca was a student at Wareham. Persons who had enjoyed the social bewilderments and advantages of foreign courts, or had mingled freely in the intellectual circles of great universities, might not have looked upon Wareham as.

I believe that she marries Mr. Ladd (a.k.a. "Mr. Aladdin"), but I wish we could know for sure. Overall, I highly reccomend this book to readers of all ages. If you like books with wonderful supporting characters and an unusual, loveable heroine, treat yourself to "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm".5/5(5).
