A Betsy-Tacy treasure

Just in the door from a quick pilgrimage to Powell’s (always an eagerly-anticipated destination when either of our sons is home) where I spotted a treasure for all you Betsy-Tacy fans out there:

It’s a pristine first edition of Betsy’s Wedding by Maud Hart Lovelace, the final book in her fabulous Betsy-Tacy series!  This charming bookseller at the Powell’s Cedar Hills store gamely posed with it so I could snap a picture.

At $150, it’s out of my price range (we’re still knee deep in the college years), but I thought perhaps someone might be interested.  AND for all you mother-daughter book club fans out there, I’m herewith dropping a HUGE HINT as to what my fictional club will be reading in the fifth installment (currently under construction and due in bookstores sometime in September 2011)…

  1. Oh my gosh, I’m so excited about book 5! Since this was a major hint towards book 5, I’m guessing they’ll be reading the Betsy-Tacy books. I love those books, read them when I was a bit younger and still read the later, longer ones. Keep up the good work, Heather! You’re an inspiring author. 🙂

    • YES!! Betsy-Tacy books — aren’t they fab?! Glad you enjoy them (I love the later, longer ones too — although “Downtown” is my all-time favorite). 🙂

  2. I love DownTown…………I have read them all over and over again!
    I’m so glad you picked these books for #5 Heather!!!

    • Downtown is my favorite, too! (Well, that one and “Betsy and the Great World” — soooo romantic!)

    • Hi Claire — actually, I only heard about the Betsy-Tacy books about a year ago! Somehow I missed reading them when I was growing up. I was traveling in Minnesota and the Midwest, and people kept coming up to me and telling me, “You should have your book club read the Betsy-Tacy books.” So I took a look, and they were right! Now I’m a BIG FAN! 🙂
