These 18 wonderful short stories by Eleanor H. Porter, the author of Pollyanna, deal with those marvelous and maddeningly frustrating creatures: human beings. As always, Porter describes real people with sensitivity and an insight into all of their variety that makes you say "I knew someone just like that". She is able to capture the faded, but not quite extinguished, dreams of the elderly and the bright hopes of youth. The theme of this collection is how we humans deal with life and love throughout our lives, "Across the Years", no matter where we are or what era we live in.

after falling in love with this author this book was depressing and a big dissapointment. seemed like all the stories were tragic parents neglected or aged couples in the depths of despair. most of the readers were hard to understand and I am very lenient about readers! I much prefer her other books!

I like the lessons of respect to the elderly in this book. I hope it made people consider their parents more.

Almost like Aesop fables. Morale and manners. But, not in your face.

A good book... Some readers are hard to understand. But the stories are very interesting!
