The second in the Beany Malone series. The first in the series by Lenora Mattingly Weber was published in 1948 with the setting seeing soldiers coming home from WWII. The series has continued to be reprinted for over 50 years! I think I sarted reading them in the mid 1960s, and though obviously dated, I am enjoying reading them again.

The Malones are a motherless family and Dad is a journalist. In the first book he left home to cover Pearl Harbor and in the second he's in Arizona recovering from pneumonia. The oldest daughter is in her twenties and has a 3 year old. They came back to her family home when her soldier husband was at war. There are 3 other girls and a boy in the family giving the author lots of plot opportunities! I've already got book 3 on the Kindle.… (more)

I read all these Beany books a long long time ago and remember loving them.

This was a favorite series of mine in my teen years! I had to go to a neighboring town library to find it. I am not sure if they had this one. They were missing one or two of the collection and I am still trying to collect all of them!

Found this in an outgoing bucket at the library. I loved the old fashioned cover. I remembered it at once when I started reading. I read the first three quarters of it in a flash and then slowed down to enjoy the rest. I'll be looking for the others in the series. I'm glad to have found them again.
