A very imaginative novel by Hildegarde Hawthorne (1871-1952), the granddaughter of Nathaniel Hawthorne. Two sisters are transported into the books they've read, with each chapter being from a different novel, and such wishes being granted by their fairy friend. Some of the places they choose to travel to are from Alice in Wonderland, Little Women, Ivanhoe, Lorna Doone, Elizabeth Gaskell's Cranford, Dicken's The Old Curiosity Shop, George Eliot's Romola, Longfellow's Evangeline, and King Arthur.
