"Peggy Tavenner, sensitive and lonely, feels the contrast between herself and her friendly, pretty, popular sister, Gretta. Her moodiness makes her a 'difficult' person; her family and those who want to be her friends are often hurt and puzzled by her rebuffs. Unable to endure her unhappiness, Peggy determines to do something about herself. How she acquires poise and independence and finally happiness is a vivid and fascinating story. The influence of dark, vivacious John Burns and of quiet, steady Martin Poe, as well as that of her patient family on this pessimistic girl is well portrayed. And the joyous, simple family life in Peggy's home affords a sunlit background for the conflicts through which she must struggle."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
