1912. Webster was a grandniece of Mark Twain. She was interested in social work, especially the fields of childcare and prison reform, but her main occupation was writing. She wrote a number of short stories and novels for younger readers including her most famous work, Daddy- Long-Legs. In Daddy-Long-Legs Jerusha Abbot is an orphan with a wicked pen and penetrating insight. Lately of the John Grier Home for orphans, of which too little good cannot be said, Miss Abbott embarks upon a course of college study funded by an anonymous benefactor. This epistolary story contains her charming letters to her unknown Daddy-Long-Legs, named by Miss Abbott because only once at the orphanage did she see his shadow drawn out in the headlights of the car toward which he walked. The insight and wit in this little book are priceless. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing. [via]
