I have a friend coming over later, so want to get today’s post in relatively early, so as not to miss it.

72. Mary Cary, Frequently Martha by Kate Langley Bosher

I can’t find any information about the author online, but this is an interesting book. It’s set in the orphan asylum of a relatively small town and is the first person tale of Mary Cary, a memorable (she gets into more than her fair share of scrapes) and influential inhabitant of the asylum. She distinguishes her moods as feeling like Mary or Martha, which suggests a strong Christian influence, and yet I couldn’t quite place this book at all. I may have been distracted while listening to it, but although the story worked, on some level it just didn’t hang together for me. The ending was all a bit fairytale-ish for my liking.
