  • Love this story!!

  • This is an excellent book for a second grade reader.
    It is easy to read and the story is good.
    Absolutely love this book!

  • Great book that my nine year old daughter and I enjoyed together! I love the historical aspects of the Samantha book, and this one was extremely heart-warming.

  • Imagine your best friend lives in an orphanage. How would you feel? Well in this story there¡¦s a girl named Samantha with your uncle and aunt to named Samantha, and she moved to New York with her Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia. Samantha felt very unhappy. She didn¡¦t know what to do.

    Samantha¡¦s best friend is named Nellie; Nellie has two little sisters named Bridget and Jenny. All of the sisters got sent to the orphanage. Nellie and her sisters got sent to the orphanage because their parents died and their uncle, Mike O¡¦ Malley, gave them to a woman, and then the women sent Nellie and her sisters to the orphanage. The orphanage is called Coldrock House. Coldrock House is a place for homeless girls.

    The place was different because it was in 1904, where cars are different with out a roof, where there are no telephones and when they used fire to heat the house.

    My favorite part is when Samantha took the orphan girls to her aunt and uncle¡¦s house. She kept them in the attic and didn¡¦t tell her uncle and aunt. She treated them in a kind gentle way. She¡¦s very helpful girl. I have a connection because my friend treats me in a kind gentle way too.

    This is a great book. This book tells people how to treat people kindly. This book is good for second and third graders.

  • Rounding out the Samantha series, our young protagonist now heads off to New York to live with her newly married Uncle Gard and Aunt Cornelia. In contrast to the staid and demure life she knew with Gradmary, turn of the century New York City is bustling with energy, activty....and injustice.
    Samantha discovers her old friend Nellie is also in the area, but fell on harder times when her uncle turned out to be abusive, and the best the equally impoverished woman downstairs could do was to take Nellie and sibblings to the local orphanage. Even if she personally liked them, this woman also realized the times they all lived in did not provide the means for reasonable support options.
    Decidely more sober, coiffed, and put together than Miss Hannigan of Annie fame, the directress Miss Frouchy has simmilary warped social betterment ideas. Reinforcing the Victorian immutability of economic class and punnitative 'stain' of institutionalization, Nellie's hair is drab and she wears an equally unbecoming sack (which appears to be constructed of burlap).
    Yet, this same social structure can be easily altered as demonstrated by Aunt Cornelia and Uncle Gard's adoption of Nellie and her sisters into their own homes---not as servants, but offspring. Because adoption of older children (from any social class, let alone low-income) was especially radical in the Victorian era, and still today (where infants are prefered)the story is a bit difficult to believe at this point, but the charming illustrations manage to convey friendship and loyalty throughout.
