A Goodly Heritage

by George Holbert Tucker is an interesting history of Jane Austen's ancestors. It would be a good book to read if you were assigned to draw up Jane Austen's family tree, and write some facts about each person on it.

Rilla of Ingleside

by L. M. Montgomery is the last book in the "Anne of Green Gables" series. I really enjoyed it; however, be sure to read Rainbow Valley (book 7), first, as the authour has various characters refer to events that took place in Rainbow Valley. The reason that I read Rilla of Ingleside first was because in one of my family's Anne of Green Gables books, Rainbow Valley is listed last.

Old Creole Days

by George W. Cable is an enjoyable book about Creole life in Louisiana in the 18th or 19th Century. I really enjoyed reading all of the stories in this book, and wouldn't mind reading them again.
