Description

Daddy-Long-Legs, by the American writer, Jean Webster, is a classic epistolary novel.

Summary of the Book

This novel traces the college years of Jerusha "Judy" Abbott, the young protagonist. She was brought up in an old-fashioned orphanage, where the children were taken care of by the charity that the rich made. Jerusha pens letters to her sponsor, a rich man who she does not know personally. One day, she gets a glimpse of the man from the back and becomes aware of his tall, long legs. Thus, she called him "Daddy-Long-Legs" jovially. Witness Jerusha’s educational, social, and personal growth in this gripping tale, which moves on to reveal who the Daddy-Long-Legs actually is.

Don't waste your money

The seller charged Rs 139 (+delivery charges) for this book while its MRP is Rs 100/-. This is cheating.
