    As was the case with the book immediately preceding this one in the series I had some mixed feelings about this installment in the Sue Barton series On the plus side I was to an extent venturing out on very sketchily charted waters with this book because in contrast to the earlier books which I read to pieces this one I'd read just once in my youth It was fun reading a Sue Barton book which I didn't know nearly by heart I also found the rural New Hampshire setting interesting and Sue's experiences there reminded me on a superficial level of those of Anna the main character of Dorothy Canfield's Bonfire a novel I read around the same time who is also a rural nurse in next door Vermont and this lent Sue Barton Rural Nurse some depth by association Much of the book at hand concerns a medical mystery which I found reasonably intriguing Now for the mixed feelings So much of the conflict in the preceding book centered on whether or not Sue would give up her Henry Street nursing career to join Bill in New Hampshire earlier than planned Then all of a sudden at the start of the book Bill announces that his invalid brother Elliott never mentioned before and never mentioned again needs expensive medical treatment and they are going to have to postpone the wedding because his practice can't yet support a household Sue has already uit Henry Street What to do? She decides to come up to the little town where Bill is trying to establish himself anyway renting lodging from a local widow The thought that she needn't have uit her Henry Street job after all which in the preceding book was an agonizing decision never once crosses Sue's mind Basically Boylston just gave the plot strings of the series a massive and clumsy jerk and all the characters accept the new set of circumstances uite calmly because that suits the author's convenience My feelings of annoyance from the preceding book about Bill and Sue summarily deciding the future of both Sue's friend Kit and Marianna a homeless teen Sue and Kit took under their wings carried over into this one It's pretty obvious that dragging the streetwise Marianna to a sleepy New Hampshire hamlet is a mistake but the author has them do it anyway because plot Oh well Fortunately the whole of the Sue Barton series is greater than the sum of its parts You can tell a series has a hold on you when you kind of enjoy grousing about it Note on the editionUsually one likes one's childhood copy of a book best but I am uite fond of the particular volume which currently sits on my shelves and is a relatively recent acuisition It's a shabby ex library hardback with worn soft boards that I picked up at a very strange local used bookshop a place I kind of hesitate to call a bookshop It's on an industrial street and it's hardly ever open and the 70 something very nice man who runs it combines it with a knife sharpening business and the greater part of the stock seems to be ex library best sellers covered in grimy dust However I found this book here and what charms me about it is that it used to belong to the library of the high school a few blocks away from me which coincidentally the proprietor of the bookstore had reminisced about attending when we chatted My uuens neighborhood is mostly populated by recent immigrants with a few hipsters trickling in from Brooklyn so it was notable and interesting to meet a local old timer Nowadays the school has a pretty bad reputation and I have to say none of the students I've seen look like Sue Barton readers The incongruity of it tickles me somehow even as the thought of the passage of time and the layers of change makes me wistful I like old books

    Oh man I love Sue Barton In this book our plucky yeah the book took it there redheaded nurse is in New Hampshire her home state where people talk in accents I sometimes have to read aloud to understand There's a mysterious outbreak of typhoid with some heavy foreshadowing and her fiance Dr Barry has to postpone their nuptials to attend to his invalid brother when his parents die suddenly Based on my experience with Sue Barton Visiting Nurse I expect that these storylines will be wrapped up within the next few chapters I am about halfway through and then we can move on to a some manufactured drama and b even detailed descriptions of the day to day lives of nurses in the 1940sI really enjoy the language of these books It is pleasantly old fashioned I realize that my description sounds kind of Nancy Drewish but these books really aren't These are teenage fantasies of adulthood and what it might be like to hold a job in an era where women were not expected to This book has less of a ueer vibe than Visiting Nurse although Sue still lives with women rather than with her man; somehow their attempts to get married keep getting thwarted Veazie Ann the caretaker of Dr Barry's erstwhile family estate reads as a butch housemarm kind of an Alice Brady BunchAs I read I keep getting glimpses of how Sue may have turned out thinking of her generation She is the same age as my grandmother who was incidentally a nurse before she married my grandfather and moved to the farm I doubt that Nurse Barton is now running a family business and caretaking her slowly declining husband in rural Northern California but maybe that book just hasn't been written yetedited to add Just finished this book The ending was a non surprise with a couple of anti climactic climaxes I am going to add a spoiler here so take this as an alert for some reason the author decided to end the book on the euivalent of a freeze frame of a church full of hurricane survivors laughing at a drunk dachshund You read that correctly As correctly as that can be read anyhow

    This was an enjoyable book but it's not my favorite in the series Sue doesn't seem completely ready to settle down and get married; I almost think she was a little relieved that the wedding was postponed Maybe it's because Bill just doesn't seem to have much personalityI did like the setting It really made me want to go to New Hampshire and revisit those majestic mountains The part about the hurricane flood reminded me of a similar event in Penny Marsh Public Health NurseContent wise this is clearly pretty innocuous A few characters use God's name in vain but that's really the only notable objection The writing has an old fashioned charm to it which makes for pleasant escapist reading—although I don't think I got all the 1930s slang and references Also some of the transcribed dialogue of the locals was hard for me to decipher It reminded me of the language in Tomie de Paola's Front Porch Tales and North Country WhoppersThe ending seemed a bit too rushed and tidy with Marianna suddenly deciding to stay and the unexpected donation of a new hospital and nursing school

    Sue Barton is a Nancy Drewlike series about a young nurse ala Cherry Ames as a student and in her work life The 30s 40s shine clearly as things are pretty sexist and the informational parts of the books like what it was like in poor rural communities and how badly they needed nurses and doctors are generally out of date but don't feel too tacked on Presumably these were written to encourage young girls no boys need apply to undertake careers in nursing or at least encourage them to continue in schoolRural Nurse has a romance subplot as Sue moves to a rural community to be near her fiance She has to find a way to make money and talks to several people to set herself up as a community nurse The solution to an epidemic is found with Sue's detection but she CONCEALS THIS SO THAT HER FIANCE THE DOCTOR CAN FIGURE IT OUT ON HIS OWN AND EARN THE THANKS OF THE TOWN Then there is an exciting weather event to round things off Ah The 1930s I wonder if the children's series fiction of 2011 will seem as sexist and horrible to readers of 2091Fun to read popular books of the past

    Sue's wedding postponed by unfortunate events she takes on the challenge of Springdale working as a rural nurse in the backwoods A strange case of typhoid threats for Dr Barry's practice and Marianna all combine with good old salty homey New Hampshire folk for a cozy evening read

    Better than I remembered it but because it doesn't have the same nostalgic pull on me I can't rate it higher than 3 starsI wonder if something got lost in the translation concerning Bill's brother We haven't heard about him at all in the earlier books and suddenly he's in Europe and has to get electronic treatments with no explanation as to why Not that it's important for the book I just found it oddVery much a transitional book and I'm looking forward to seeing what the next will bring

    These are Shelly's books so I only have until July 15 to read themThis one bogs down a little in the middle as Sue becomes Nancy Drew in an attempt which we know will be successful to discover the source of the typhoid outbreak which threatens not only the health of the rural folk but her future husband's practice as well Oh the dramaNo one today would be convinced to go into nursing reading this book but I imagine at the time uite a few were Again a pleasant peek into the past
