"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.
