A hardcover book entitled Dear Enemy by Jean Webster. This is a 1915 First Edition and was a sequel to the book Daddy-Long-Legs. The cover boards are tan with green plaid design
First published in 1915, it was among the top ten best sellers in the US in 1916. The story is presented in a series of letters written by Sallie McBride, Judy Abbott's classmate and best friend in Daddy-Long-Legs. The main character is Judy's pal from college, Sallie McBride, whom Judy recruits from her frivolous life to run the John Grier orphan asylum. Sallie accepts the challenge, mainly to anger her politician suitor who doesn't think she's up to the task. And so the adventure begins. This time the letters are from Sallie mostly to Judy, but letters to others including to the home's moody Scottish doctor--her "enemy"--add some variation.
Jean Webster (1876 – 1916) was an American writer and author of many books including Daddy-Long-Legs and Dear Enemy. Jean Webster was a pseudonym for Alice Jane Chandler Webster. Her best-known books feature lively and likable young female protagonists who come of age intellectually, morally, and socially, but with enough humor, snappy dialogue, and gently biting social commentary to make her books enjoyable.
