Classic story for girls about the Carr family living in Burnet, Texas over a century ago.
This is the second book in a series and the reader is expected to know everything about the family without further explanation. Katy and her sister Clover are sent to a boarding school 3 days journey away in New England. The school rules are very strict but our heroines soon make friends and fit in. The winter is freezing cold, they form a secret society, they peep out of the window at young men! In places the book is very funny but it also gives an interesting glimpse into a different way of life, gone for ever.
