Read full description of the books Betsy's Wedding:I can never decide which of the Betsy-Tacy books are my favorite. I think that's because I love them all (especially the ones from her highschool years on) equally. They are all so sweet and perfect and I love them. But Betsy's Wedding has a special place in my heart.
Why? Well, y'know. Betsy and Joe are (big spoilers ...) married in this one. They are adorable. Like, they must be the cutest couple ever! They get along so well, and even when they disagree, they manage to get through it together. It's a hard time for a young couple to get started in the world (yet another spoiler: WW1), but they get through it together. I only wish Lovelace had written just one more book! At the end, (view spoiler)[Joe goes off to war. (hide spoiler)] I mean, seriously?! Was there ever a worse cliffhanger in the history of books?!?!?! Yet another author I have to look up in Heaven (you know, assuming ... but I'm sure she's a Christian!) and yell at. And force to write a sequel. If one is allowed to write in Heaven ... but I'd assume you would be. :P
And we get to see the whole Crowd settled. Tacy (ohmygosh!!!), Cab (which was cute), Carney, Sam ... we even hear Tony mentioned, I think. And of course Tib. *giggles* That was possibly the cutest subplot ever. Oh, wow, am I glad (view spoiler)[she didn't end up with Rocky! (hide spoiler)] He was suuuuch a stinker! No way was he husband-worthy material for Tib! But (view spoiler)[the guy Tib did marry was awesome for her. (hide spoiler)]
Also, I was juuuust a wee bit disappointed that (view spoiler)[Betsy and Joe didn't have a baby. I mean, Betsy even admits on several occasions that she wants a baby, and they talk about having kids. But then they don't. I suppose it would be kinda inconvenient because of the war and all ... but still. I really wish they could've had a baby before the series ended! (hide spoiler)] So yeah. Yet another reason we need an 11th Betsy-Tacy book.
I wonder if Lovelace just thought ten was a nice even number or ...? WELL SO IS TWELVE!!! I wouldn't complain at all. *is so sad*
But yep, this is one of my favorite books of all time, and I just can't get enough of it! :)

Read information about the authorMaud Hart Lovelace was born on April 25, 1892, in Mankato, Minnesota. She was the middle of three children born to Thomas and Stella (Palmer) Hart. Her sister, Kathleen, was three years older, and her other sister, Helen, was six years younger. “That dear family" was the model for the fictional Ray family.
Maud’s birthplace was a small house on a hilly residential street several blocks above Mankato’s center business district. The street, Center Street, dead-ended at one of the town’s many hills. When Maud was a few months old, the Hart family moved two blocks up the street to 333 Center.
Shortly before Maud’s fifth birthday a “large merry Irish family" moved into the house directly across the street. Among its many children was a girl Maud’s age, Frances, nicknamed Bick, who was to be Maud’s best friend and the model for Tacy Kelly.
Tib’s character was based on another playmate, Marjorie (Midge) Gerlach, who lived nearby in a large house designed by her architect father. Maud, Bick, and Midge became lifelong friends. Maud once stated that the three couldn’t have been closer if they’d been sisters.
