Description

'A well-written and very accessible abridgment of the classic Daddy Long Legs. Perfect for introducing this text to 7 to 12 year olds.' --The Wishing Shelf

Jerusha Abbott is a lonely orphan raised in the John Grier Home. She dreams of being an author, but the prospects for her future aren't bright--that is, until a mysterious benefactor takes interest in her.

One of the trustees of her orphanage--who wishes to remain anonymous--has offered to pay for Jerusha's entire college tuition. The only catch is that Jerusha is required to write him a letter every month to update him on her progress.

Month after month, Jerusha pens her letters to "Daddy-Long-Legs," growing closer to the mysterious man all the while. As she embraces her independence and discovers who she is, one thing remains constant for Jerusha: her unconditional, heartwarming love for her benefactor, "Daddy-Long-Legs."
