|About the Book|
This is one of my favorite novels by this authoress. I am glad that she is being re-discovered. Her style is a cross between Louisa May Alcott and Jane Austen. Though she deals with more serious subjects than Alcott ever did. I highly recommend this book and many of her other works.The characters are well-written and the plot is well-paced. None of her characters are perfect in this novel (as in all of her other novels), which makes them more realistic. She provides great insight into what life was like in America at that time.
