Item Description...
When Martitia is taken in by the Gardners after the death of her parents, she comes to love them and wishes to become as useful to the family as a real Gardner daughter

Publishers Description
Tears and laughter alternate in this novel of a young girl's growth to womanhood in the 1830's. 16-year-old orphan Martitia Howland has been transplanted into a Quaker farm family of five intimidating sons and one disapproving daughter. As Martitia runs their gauntlet, she begins to bloom. Valiantly she acquires the skills they expect of her, and discovers other gifts all her own. Her achievements earn respect in the end and more, her heart's true love.

Wonderful old friend  Aug 10, 2008
I absolutely loved this book when I was a child. I must have checked it out from the Bookmobile over a dozen times, and always wished I had my own copy. In fact, almost fifty years later, I still wanted one. I am so glad to see that it is back.
Impossible to "get into"  Mar 6, 2008
After reading all the positive reviews on this book I was looking forward to getting it, but didn't care for the style, the characters, or the go-nowhere plot and abandoned it about halfway through.
So glad to find it again!!  Jan 15, 2007
I love this book!
I first read it when I was about 12 years of age. Now I have a daughter that age & was so delighted to find this book online!Hopefully she'll enjoy it a much as I did.
Seeing this book again makes me feel like a child at Christmas!  Nov 12, 2006
Like so many others who've commented, this book was one of my all-time favorite books when I was a teenager in the 60's. The other was another book by Worth, "Sea Change." It was an entirely different setting, but equally charming and moving. The gentle, inspiring depth of both books helped shape my life. I am thrilled that "They Loved to Laugh" has been reprinted and I hope "Sea Change" will be also. (I'd love to know more about the author and whether or not writing these books changed her life as they changed so many of ours.)
My favorite Book!!!!!!  Nov 11, 2006
They Loved to Laugh is my favorite book! I think the title is one of the best things about it. It really got me excited. Why do they love to laugh? Who loves to laugh? It aroused my curiosity and made me want to read it. I began it and couldn't put it down. I finished it that very day.
Martitia is an orphan girl who is taken to live with a Quaker family when her parents die of typhoid fever. She plans to go live with her aunt and uncle in the city, but her heart is drawn to this Quaker family with their six children and their unique family bond. Throughout the story she learns to laugh and also learns a lesson of love.
