2012 book 75

Jean Webster's Dear Enemy
I had no idea there was a sequel to Daddy-Long-Legs until I read Webster's Wikipedia page (linked a couple entries down)--in this one, Jerusha convinces her best friend from college to run the orphanage where she grew up (mentioned frequently in the first book). The romantic element is predictable, but the look at 1910s childcare and society in general is completely fascinating.
