More About the Author

Susan Coolidge was the pen name for Sarah Chauncey Woolsey who was born in 1835 into a wealthy and influential family in Ohio, USA. She spent much of her childhood in Connecticut after her family moved there in 1852 and worked as a nurse during the American Civil War, after which she started to write. She never married, and resided at her family home in Rhode Island until her death in 1905.

The fictional Carr family, who feature in What Katy Did, are based on her own family, with Katy Carr inspired by Woolsey herself and the brothers and sisters by her four younger siblings.

4.0 out of 5 stars But what happened next..?! 18 Oct. 2004
By A Customer
"In The High Valley" concludes the series of stories about the Carr family. Disappointingly, the family hardly appear for the first 50 pages as the beginning of the book is set in England. Fortunately, we are soon back with the family, and it seems that a few surprising events have occured since the end of "Clover"!
Although a huge fan of the series, I can see why this book and "Clover" were out of print for so long. They don't really deal with the adventures of Katy (who is now married and a mother), so wouldn't fit neatly into the "What Katy Did" mould. But like "Little Women", which has continually remained in print along with its sequels, the Katy books are as much about an entire family as one person.
Many loose ends are tied up by the end of the book, but I will always wonder "what happened next?"! However, I think this is a fitting end to the adventures of the Carr family and would heartily recommend it.

It is nice to finally be able to complete the What Katy Did series of books, but the format and printing of this book was appalling. If there was a proof reader then they should be fired immediately for not only were there several simple spelling mistakes but the paragraphing was quite simply bizarre and somewhat distracting. If all copies of this book are as strange as my copy then I would advise other readers to try to find a different version if possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars The final chapter 6 Oct. 2008
By B. Nunn - Published on
This book is the final of the Katy series.
There's not much about Katy this time - mostly Clover, as in the 4th book "Clover", but it is an excellent end to the series.

It is set about 6 years after the end of "Clover", so there are a few surprises in characters - nice surprises.

Well worth reading if you can get a copy. The printing and formatting of this edition is a little disappointing, and makes the book a little hard to read.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Delight of Life with the Carr family 27 Aug. 2013

In my youth I avidly read the entire Katy series. In a spell of nostalgia I reread the series and..... loved every one of the stories yet again. I have no hesitation in saying that the joy of reading books wherein I have no fear of cuss words OR any sexual activities leaves me in a euphoria of contentment. These books are undeniably educational and have the added bliss of being beautifully written. Ah for a return of innocence and delight in the striving for true goodness.

This is the story of the grown-up Clover. It is a remarkably tranquil story that I could not put down. I HAD to know what was to become of my Clover. It did not disappoint.
