Betsy and the Great World – Betsy Ray has dreamed of seeing the great world ever since she was a little girl growing up in Deep Valley, Minnesota. Now twenty-one years old, she’s finally getting her wish! From Munich to Venice, Paris to London, Betsy’s grand tour of Europe is filled with adventure-and as a budding young writer, she is determined to make the most of the experience. But wherever she goes, Betsy can’t help thinking about her estranged sweetheart, Joe Willard. Can she find a way to make amends, an ocean away from home?
Betsy’s Wedding – Ever since Betsy Ray first met Joe Willard, there’s been something special between them. And when Betsy returns home after a tour of Europe, Joe is waiting at the dock, ready to propose. After a year’s separation, Betsy and Joe are determined never to be apart again. But as Betsy discovers, marriage isn’t all candlelight, kisses and roses. There’s cooking, ironing, and budgeting as well-not to mention forging her career as a writer. But Betsy has always thrived on challenge. And her life remains as full of love and laughter as it’s been since she was a little girl living on Hill Street in the first of the classic Betsy-Tacy books.
