Mable Riley - Marthe Jocelyn
Set in Canada in 1901, this gentle tale relates the adventures of a
14-year-old who accompanies her older sister to the small town where she
has been hired as a teacher. Mable discovers that very little happens
in Sellerton, other than her frequent spats with her sister. Most of her
days are spent assisting Viola at school and doing chores on the farm
where they are boarding. Her only release is found in her journal
entries or in spinning her fantasies into stories that she includes in
letters to a friend back home. Wanting to have someone with whom to
share her feelings and desires, Mable turns to a town outcast, an
eccentric woman who leads a secret group of suffragettes. As she learns
more about the injustices carried out in this small rural town, she
ignores her sister's warnings and puts herself in the midst of a strike
at the local cheese factory.

My Thoughts: This book is one of my Victory Garden books. I've had this book for some time now, but haven't read it. I got it a library book sale a few years ago. The book is in diary form and is very well written. I really enjoyed reading this book and following the life of Mable for the summer. Really loved her stories that she sent home to a friend. Mabel finds herself in a bit of trouble when the suffragettes draw her into their cause. The lady she admires gets hurt during the rally and Mabel steps in. They all get taken to jail, but her friend tells the police that Mabel was just a bystander. But in the end Mabel is the one who solves the problem at the Cheese Factory. Loved this book.
