No Fluff Books, Part II

In my last post, I disclosed some of my favorite, “no fluff” books. This week, I’ve got four more fabulous finds!

 1. An Old-Fashioned Girl

Louisa May Alcott

Polly goes to stay with her cousins in the city, where she changes the family’s life with her simple, sunny ways. Growing up in a pure, no-nonsense family, Polly does not understand the frippery and flirting going on around her. The book tells the story of a country girl striving to stay true to her character.


2. The Tamarack Tree

Patricia Clapp

Set in the time of the Civil War, this book chronicles the torn feelings of Rosemary Leigh, whose friends are in the South, but beliefs are with the North.


3. Tuck Everlasting

Natalie Babbitt

Winnie discovers the Tucks, and is faced with the choice of immortality. A thought-provoking book, Tuck Everlasting explores the beauty of a life that ends.


4. Girl of the Limberlost

Gene Stratton-Porter

Eleanor struggles to pay her own way through school, coping with an embittered mother, befriending a fatherless boy, and sorting out her love.
