Samantha Parkington is a bright Victorian beauty being raised by her wealthy grandmother in 1904. Samantha's stories describe her life during this important period of change. Her own world is filled with frills and finery, parties and play. But Samantha sees that times are not good for everybody. That's why she tries to make a difference in the life of her friend Nellie, a servant girl whose world is nothing like Samantha's Samantha befriends a servant girl named Nellie who moves in next door. The girls become fast friends, though their lives are different.
Meet Samantha is about a young girl living in 1904 with her Grandmary. She is being taught the "proper" way a lady should act, and while she doesn't exactly know if she agrees she must do as she's told. But, she finds a friend in the girl who comes to work next door, but this also opens up Samantha to a few things she never knew of before. She's learning a few things about the world outside of her house, and it doesn't look too pretty.
I loved this book when I was a kid, and I love it now just the same. This collection of stories is so good that you can't help but be sucked into each girls story and their life.
I loved how Samantha wanted to learn and wasn't afraid to help her friend when she was in need. She was a sweet little girl with a very big heart. Sometimes now days it doesn't really seem like these type of children exist any longer.
