I really enjoyed this book for what it was. It kept me up till late, I finished it in one day and it was exactly right. It is a kids' book though and I would have been obsessed with it and gotten lost in it at 10, but now I would just read it to my (very distant) kids again.

Reader reviewed by mearley

A very sweet story of four sisters who go on vacation with their widowed father to a little cottage on the grounds of a mansion owned by the very proper Mrs. Tifton. The girls befriend Mrs. Tifton's son and the teenage gardener. All four sisters manage to get into some sort of trouble during the summer, whether it's letting rabbits out of their cages or barging into a formal garden party.

This book had the sense of being from another era, a carefree time of innocence. At times the story was occasionally too sweet for my taste, but overall it was refreshing. The Penderwick sisters seem to be modern cousins of Anne of Green Gables.
