Another favorite story of mine, with a wonderfully sweet main character. Miranda is a housekeeper for a progressive family. She is very protective of those she loves, starting with little Nathan. She brings him a plate of bread and jelly, chicken and cookies. Previously, she had helped his brother Allan escape. She packed bread, turnovers and cookies for his trip.
During Nathan's first dinner as an invited guest, Miranda served johnnycake, tea-cakes with preserves and jam, biscuits, ham, fried potatoes and cake. Before a trip to New York, she fixed fried mush, sausage, potatoes, doughnuts, coffee and applesauce. While studying in the evening, Miranda made sure to have cookies and gingerbread available.
Miranda has a little bit of everything- history (of train travel, the telegraph, politics) lighthearted pranks, family worship, missionaries and even a quilt! But don't just take my word for it...

On Sunday, October 23 I'll choose a winner to receive a copy of Miranda.
