Two rainbows! Very faint, but still I saw them!!! :)
One day in August I got an email from a blog friend, Katie, writing to me about a series of books: The Betsy-Tacy books, these are a series of semi-autobiographical novels by American novelist and short-story writer Maud Hart Lovelace (1892-1980).
I had used a quote from one of the books on a blog post, which prompted Katie to write me.
I didn’t realize there is so many wonderful things about Betsy-Tacy and her books. A huge following of men and women have created a Betsy-Tacy society, helped purchase the houses Betsy-Tacy grew up in and other tireless good works.

They work to spread the word about these delightful books–even donating them to local libraries.
Betsy-Tacy are true stories written at the turn of the 20th Century—1900 — set in Mankato, Minnesota , similar to the Little House on the Prairie books, only in 1900, not 1871.
Please take some time out of your busy day to visit these sites I have marked in blue you just might like these special little books! I have only read the first four for far.
I hope you enjoy them!
