Its sequel, Dear Enemy (1915), also told in letters, follows the progress of Judys former orphanage now run by her friend Sallie McBride, who struggles to give her young charges hope and a new life. Full of irrepressible female characters that both recall Alcotts Jo March and anticipate the popular heroines of contemporary literature, Websters novels are witty, heartfelt, and delightfully modern.
