    The Trumpet of the Swan by E. B. White. I found youtube audios of the author reading his own story.

    I picked the book out of a "Little Library" at a nearby park, and I intend to mail it to my 11-year-old grand-daughter as a gift.
    I think it is truly wonderful to listen to the New England accent of E. B. White. Once in a while I hear trumpeter swans in my neck of the woods, so I can relate to the ornithology in his story. White expressed what I would consider traditional roles of males & females meeting the challenges of daily life as a mated pair. Perhaps the story, as he told it, is as passe as a 6-cent postage stamp.

    Which in many ways is more about her daughter Rose than Laura.

    Rose was the first journalist to do a major story about Jack London.

    Currently reading "Hazards of Time Travel" by Joyce Carol Oates, and I'm really enjoying it.

    Catherine: It's a futuristic dystopian novel with a young female protagonist. I think you would like it.

    Catherine: I'll be interested in your opinion if you read it. The ending kind of left me scratching my head.
