Brookline of St. Mary's Asylum is a delightful, light hearted, and interesting story about a girl named Brookline who is sent to live at an orphan asylum.

Barnes &

Brookline unknowing possesses a special perceception and ability that manifests through strange dreams and deep feelings. Periodically she has strange dreams, but she does not understand them nor understand why she has them. Being a child she thinks they are very amusing and share them with her friends.

St. Mary's Asylum is unlike the typical idea of an orphan home. There are no rigid rules. The children do as they please, which often results in mischief. A grim nun named Sister Quartince, the new director of the asylum, attempts to bring order and structure to the home. However, the spirited children with the encouragement of the other nuns and priest defy her.

Although the home is poor, it is comfortable and the children love it. Brookline grows to like the asylum, and she develops a good friendship with her roommates, Jane and Missy. Throughout the story Brookline and her comrades get into exciting and unusual situations and meet interesting people, getting into trouble and having lots of fun.
