    One thought on “Paintbox Summer”

    1. This book may very well have been the beginning of my lifelong fascination -- obssession? -- with color and design. I don't have any idea how many times I carried this small book down the long staircase from the library and back again but likely a half a dozen times would be my guess. What a lovely memory came back to me in thinking of this book and searching out the title after all these years.

    2. When I was in Jr High I devoured Betty Cavanna's books. Now as an adult I have reread some of them and decided they are like an old afghan, cozy and simple and comfortable. Her writing style is like watching an old Debbie Reynolds movie. But what stands out is how are strong and independent the heroines are, there is always a boy but most of their focus is on their own hobbies or interests.

    3. This is a book I read in high school, but I re-read it just because it is summer and this is a really summer feeling book. I enjoyed it then and I enjoyed reading it again. One of my favorite books.

    4. For Cavanna and Folk Art fans alike. The furniture shop and owner were real. Saw a piece of the furniture in a Plymouth antique shop shortly after reading this for big bucks

    5. I was in 7th grade when I read this, I think. I wanted to paint by the sea and have a summer romance after I read it. A cute story for young girls.

    6. Like The Country Cousin, this book begins at the wedding of an admired older sister, and just as in The Country Cousin, the heroine is a somewhat insecure recent high school graduate who doesn't really know what to do with her life. And once again, she is rescued by an independent female relative who knows just the job for her to take for this crucial summer after high school (this time, it is Aunt Dotty). But Kate's dream summer job is in quaint, touristy Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod, w [...]

    7. This sweet and innocent summer read is one of my favorite memories. Growing up we had certain books to be read in certain seasons, and this was a beloved book for summer vacation from about age 10 to age 18 or so. I remember just loving the descriptions of clothing and the gentle, sweet tone of the writing. It may not appeal to pre teens today, as the issues it deals with are so dated in comparison to online bullying, teen pregnancy and school shootings. But older readers may love a delightful e [...]

    8. When my grandparents were going through their books to give away before they moved into their apartment, this book ended up in a box to donate. My mom picked this one up and handed it to me. She said it was her favorite growing up and that she read it every summer. It's one of those book that is about coming of age with a romantic twist.

    9. A favorite of mine from when I was in grade school. I try to revisit this book every summer and really should own it! Published when my mom was a girl, I enjoy the sweet story!
