Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm Step through the golden gates of childhood in Kate Douglas Wiggin’s classic, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm
Eleven-year-old Rebecca is leaving Sunnybrook Farm to live with her spinster aunts and become the educated daughter her family needs. Her aunts resent her father, who left behind nothing for his wife and seven children but a forty-eight-dollar mortgage. When Rebecca climbs out of the stagecoach with her pink parasol, wide-eyed and nervous about her new life, she is quickly met with the strict rules of Aunt Miranda, who has no patience for the antics of a rambunctious child. With her winning nature and lively demeanor, Rebecca becomes the young woman no one expected her to be.
