Katy's tale could so easily have been preachy.

Set in 1860s USA it's about a thoughtless, careless, happy girl who has a terrible accident. As she learns to live with pain and with not being able to walk, she also learns how to be patient and loving.

However, the lessons are interspersed with anecdotes about Katy and her family. These are so alive and colourful that I am sure they must be partly true!

There's the time Katy befriends a counterfeiter's wife; an important visitor finds and reads aloud Katy's story about Bop the blue poodle and Lady Edwitha of the Hebrides; and her sister Johnny's 'baby', a chair named Pikery falls ill and must be dosed with stolen medicine.

Reviews from Amazon:

I love this book and all the Katy series. I was just a little girl when I first read it and it quickly became one of my favourites. Sadly my much-read copy was lost when we moved, and I never replaced it.

Now here it is for the Kindle, and I have just spent a very happy few hours renewing my acquaintance with the Carr family. A huge thank you to the transcribers.

Society and fashion may change, but people don't and I, a 20th century English child had no trouble relating to Katy, a 19th century American child. 
Now middle-aged, I love Katy just as much, and find her adventures just as enjoyable.
This is a delightful little gem, well presented and beautifully written. I actually really enjoyed this book. I know it's a bit old-fashioned now, and obviously things have changed a lot since this book was written. 

Girls aren't expected to be perfect little angels these days. But it's still a very sweet book. It was interesting to see Katy change from a rebellious little girl into a polite and kind young woman.

One thing about this book that I didn't really like was the ending. I thought the last chapter seemed a bit rushed, and it seemed to me like the happy ending was a bit of an afterthought, and slightly unlikely too.
