Understood Betsy

Understood Betsy by Dorothy Canfield Fisher

Understood Betsy is a heartwarming story that follows the transformation of a young girl named Elizabeth Ann from a timid, sheltered child to a confident, independent individual. The author, Dorothy Canfield Fisher, does a fantastic job of capturing Elizabeth Ann's growth and development as she is sent to live with her relatives in the countryside.

Throughout the story, readers witness Elizabeth Ann's journey as she learns to overcome her fears and adapt to her new surroundings. The characters in the book are well-developed and relatable, making it easy for readers to become emotionally invested in their lives.

Overall, Understood Betsy is a beautifully written coming-of-age story that teaches valuable lessons about resilience, self-reliance, and the importance of embracing new experiences. I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages who enjoy heartwarming tales of personal growth and self-discovery.

Book Description:

Elizabeth Ann is a timid, sickly little girl who lives with her Aunt Frances and her Great-Aunt Harriet. When Great-Aunt Harriet becomes ill, poor little Elizabeth Ann is sent to live with the much-feared Putney cousins, whom, as Great-Aunt Harriet said “Such lack of sympathy, such perfect indifference to the sacred sensitiveness of child-life, such a starving of the child-heart … No, I shall never forget it! They had chores to do … as though they had been hired men!” But to the Putney cousins in Vermont Elizabeth Ann has to go. And there, with her Uncle Henry, Aunt Abigail and Cousin Ann, she grows strong and well and happy and, most importantly, learns to think for herself, and truly becomes Understood Betsy.
