    1. In which we follow "Button" from her childhood in Lapland Sweden to her mature years in America. Button (her life-long nickname) is the second child of eight born to a middle-aged pastor and his young wife. The reader has the sensation that this is an autobiographical novel as the main character's flaws are related and the lessons she learned to overcome them. It is an engaging story and there are some faith-promoting gems nestled into the narrative.My goal to read one book I own each month is w [...]


    2. I always struggle with books where the main character struggles with depression. Those stories I always find emotionally draining. But in spite of that, I love the continued themes of love for family, as well as Button's journey of following her dream to write books.


    3. Poorly conceived and poorly executed. Little sense of time or place; poor characterizaion.Not recommended for anyone; a waste of paper.


    4. What a neat book. Easy to read. Made me laught and cry and think. I became very fond of Button. Left me wanting to read more. from the dust cover:The story of Papa's Daughter opens in Swedish Lapland, the northernmost province of Sweden, five years after the turn of the century. In Pastor Franzon's household, the second child, Charlotta Maria (nicknamed Button) was "a sinner" Led into mistakes by a too-fertile imagination, she collected swear words, she stole, she lied. She put a head of cabbag [...]


    5. Another good read found on my mother's bookshelf when I was a teen. I didn't know there was a third book, or I would have read that one also.


    6. This is the sequel to Papa's Wife. Here was the other side of the story about first daughter Button, who was a dreamer growing up in a pragmatic, strict home. Button was not like Mama. She constantly got into trouble at home. She had to relearn how to be happy after she suffered from depression when she was an adult. It was not as inspiring in the same way as the first book, due to the darker story of her recovery. But it is informative, yet rather simplistic than newer fiction. The heroine seem [...]


    7. This second book in the Franzon Family saga tells the story of the eldest daughter, Charlotta "Button" Franzon. While this book has much the same voice and style of the first book, "Papa's Wife", it is not nearly as lighthearted. In this installment, Button deals with loss and battles depression. Despite being somewhat darker, I still really enjoyed this book. After reading it, I felt as if I was another member of the Franzon family, observing all the events from the sidelines.


    8. I couldn't sleep a few mornings ago and got up at 4 AM and read this book. I just finished it last night. What a treat! It has more sadness than the prequel but is just as good. I love the faith in God that the author promotes. The stories from her childhood are very funny. After she grows up the stories are sadder but they all end well.


    9. I liked this book a lot. But I felt that it was too heavily edited. I missed hearing about their new lives in America and how they managed. Also, for such an important character, the news of Papa's death was so off-hand. Too much glossing over of details, I thought.


    10. Enjoyed this book because someone told me it changed her life. Is there any stronger recommendation? I'd recommend this story, which swept me along, to women who want to see what it was like to grow up in a Christian family in Sweden and the US in the early 1930s.


    11. When I was younger I enjoyed the prequel, but this one was pretty boring. I felt like the writing lacked in brilliance or color, and I never got to the point where I loved the characters. Disappointing- probably had too high of expectations.










    12. I found this book quite enjoyable. I think it was because it was about a pastor's oldest daughter. I look forward to reading other books in the series. I read most of the book in one sitting.





    13. I remember reading this when I was about 10-11 years old and loving it then-I think I enjoyed it far more as an adult though. A great read!
