Shakes head in sorrow at inability to figure out two of the girls' names.

Lit~Lass said...

Shame on me for not reading more carefully. I realized after submitting my answers that we were supposed to tell which books the characters are from. It also came to me that #3 is Edith Adelon from "The Inheritance".
So, Rose Campbell and Mac Campbell are from "Eight Cousins" and "Rose in Bloom".
Amy March, Frederich Bhaer, Theodore Laurence and John Brooke are from "Little Women".
Polly Milton is from "An Old Fashioned Girl" and since I've never read Under the Lilacs I'm not sure if the name I couldn't decipher might not be from there.

Sorry for making two comments.

Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

birdienl,

Randomly unscrambled guess for #4: Polly Milton (haha, it's fun to get names out of your scrambles even if they aren't right)

Great work on guessing #4! Two more points added to your score so you have a total of 41 points.
