About Betsy’s Wedding. I would like to make this sound like a hardship, but most of you know better. It was, as always, a pleasure and delight. And the truth is that I have been preparing for this speech, in a variety of ways,.

Betsy's Wedding (1955) is the tenth and final book in the Betsy-Tacy series written by Maud Hart Lovelace

Betsy's Wedding (1955) is the tenth and final book in the Betsy-Tacy series written by Maud Hart Lovelace. Set in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the book tells the story of the early married life of the main character, Betsy Ray, and her high-school sweetheart. The characters of Tacy Kelly and Tib Muller also recur in this novel, as they did in all the novels covering the high-school years.

Illustrated by Lois Lenski. The first of the Betsy-Tacy books resulted and ever since then I have written stories for children, most of them about Betsy who is, in some measure, myself. The Ray family is plainly the Hart family

Illustrated by Lois Lenski. The Ray family is plainly the Hart family. I meet grandfathers now who tell me that they still remember my father’s onion sandwiches. It is a great joy to me to have that dear family between book covers. I must make clear that these are books of fiction. Plots for them have been invented freely. But many-although not all-of the characters are based on real people.

Betsy's Wedding book. I think that's because I love them all (especially the ones from her highschool years on) equally. They are all so sweet and perfect and I love them. But Betsy's Wedding has a special place in my heart.

I read the Betsy Books by Maud Hart Lovelace from the library years ago - but even then, it was . Maud Hart Lovelace tells a fascinating story with the deft touch of a real writer. Her descriptions of Europe are realistic enough that you can almost retrace Betsy's steps.

And if you're going to read about Betsy (along with Tacy and Tib, of course!), you have to read ALL about he. She makes the first glorious days of marriage and setting up a household vivid, too.

Betsy's Wedding (1955) is the tenth and final book in the Betsy-Tacy series written by Maud Hart Lovelace.

The Betsy-Tacy books are based very closely on Maud’s own life. I could make it all up, but in these Betsy-Tacy stories, I love to work from real incidents, Maud wrote. The Ray family is a true portrayal of the Hart family. Mr. Ray is like Tom Hart; Mrs. Ray like Stella Palmer Hart; Julia like Kathleen; Margaret like Helen; and Betsy is like me, except that, of course, I glamorized her to make her a proper heroine. Tacy and Tib are based on Maud’s real-life best friends, Frances Bick Kenney and Marjorie Midge Gerlach, and Deep Valley is based on Mankato

A delightful semi-autobiographical story of Betsy and Joe's first year of marriage is the last of the Betsy-Tacy series. The young couple face several challenges with sensitivity and humor and, like the author and her husband in real life, continue to write. This edition contained a description of the author and the rest of her family on which the series was based.

Loved it! I was thrilled to be able to find the series and buy them! I bought them just for my book collection because I LOVED THE WHOLE SERIES AS A KID!!!

This book is great for children and teens. They will learn about life in the early 1900s in a very readable and enjoyable way.

This is the best of the Betsy Tacy books. I read them out of sequence having read one earlier childish one and then picking up Betsy's Wedding in the school library because of the awesome cover. I later read the rest of the Betsy books and this one is definitely the best one. I think the author changed the level of maturity to match the age of the characters. I'm definitely a fan of Maud Hart Lovelace in the way that some readers are hardcore fans of the Anne of Green Gables writer (I'm not).

The whole Betsy Tacy series is a triumph---some of the best reading there is. Like few others series (the Little House books are the other that comes to mind) we truly can read and watch Betsy grow from a little 5 year old to a married woman, and grow along with her. As a little girl, I read the early books in this series, and didn't know there were more. You can imagine my delight when I discovered the high school years and beyond were also part of the continuing story! In this book (as you can guess) Betsy gets married, but so does Tib! I like it that Betsy's wedding is not the end of the book--we also get to see her get started on married life during the diffecult WWI period. I remember the minute I finished this book. I had a feeling of happiness but also sadness that never again would I read something new for the first time about Betsy, Tacy, Tib, Joe, Julia, Margaret and all the rest! But the last lines were done so well--they looked to the past and into the future and made me feel that although this was all that was written about them, they continued to exist somewhere out there in the land that wonderful characters in wonderful books live on in! If you have never read this series, I envy you! Get all the books, read them, and you will remember and make them part of your life forever.

Betsy is back in the USA after a long time in Europe-and Joe is there to greet her. After being in love for years, the couple agree to get married, within the week no less! After Betsy convinces her family to agree to this, we watch as Betsy and Joe are married, and embark on a new life together.
Set near the turn of the century, around WW1, this is a view of every young woman's dream of marriage-a fun, intelligent, strong husband who adores you. Betsy and Joe are friends first, lovers second, something which is always important. At one point, Joe states that he can talk to Betsy, and that he fantasizes about their home life. A lot of guys could take a page from Joe's book!
This book is in no way dated, bringing Betsy to the close of her girlhood and teenage years. If you liked "Anne of Green Gables" or other books by Montgomery, check out Lovelace, for both your little girls and not-so-little girls.
If you haven't gotten into the Betsy-Tacy series of girls' books, based on author Maud Hart Lovelace's childhood in turn-of-the-century Minnesota, treat yourself or a young lady you love. Starting with Betsy's Wedding (or any of the books) is fine; Lovelace began this series about the close friendship of 3 little girls at a reading level appropriate for their age in the first book ("Betsy-Tacy," about age 6), and masterfully upped the reading level to match her growing heroines' ages. Betsy's Wedding is a young adult book with charm, period grace and accuracy (Betsy is very concerned about learning to cook for her wonderful groom Joe) but also prescient in its concerns for her budding career as a writer (a la Jo in "Little Women").

A personal note: I was a close friend of Maud Hart Lovelace's daughter Merian, for whom these stories were originally told as bedtime tales. And Maud was apparently as lovely a person as you'd expect from reading the series--a great lady, capable of being very funny, but never never talking "down" to her young readers.
