Dear Papa : So much has happened since Papa died. Isabelle's older sisters, Irma and Inez, both have boyfriends; little Ida hardly remembers Papa; and brother Ian is just plain mad to be left with a house full of females. Mama sold Papa's filling station and got a job. Now she's always tired. If Isabelle gets shipped off to live with her aunt and uncle, as everyone wants, who will stop Ida from calling Mama's new boss "Papa"? Set during and after World War II, Dear Papa brings readers into the world of a winning heroine with a loyal heart, an independent attitude, and an unforgettable way with words.
