DADDY-LONG-LEGS and its sequel, DEAR ENEMY, follow the lives of two orphan girls, Jerusha Abbott and her classmate Sallie McBride through a series of letters. In DADDY-LONG-LEGS, Jerusha "Judy" Abbott has been brought up in an old-fashioned orphanage but excels in her schoolwork, particularly writing. At age 18, however, she finds herself working at the orphanage with few prospects. Her life changes when a mysterious benefactor offers to pay her way through college, requiring only that she write him a letter a month. Addressed to Mr. John Smith, she faithfully writes the letters, never to receive a reply.

In DEAR ENEMY, Judy Abbott's classmate and best friend Sally McBride grows from a young woman into a successful mature woman. Sally sends her letters to Judy Abbott; Jervis Pendleton, Judy's husband and the president of the orphanage where Sallie is filling in until a new superintendent can be installed; and the orphanage's doctor, the bitter Robin 'Sandy' McRae, whom Sallie addresses as "Dear Enemy."

The novels explore a number of themes relevant to early 20th century America, including the changing role of women, orphans, divorce, and social work. Includes an active table of contents for easy navigation.
