A Great Read for Preteen Girls

Excellent book about homesteading from the early 1900's instead of Little House on the Prairie timeframe. Great inspirational role model for girls in particular.

I could not put this book down!

This book was refreshingly exciting to me. There were moments of adventure, heartache, and great relationships portrayed. The main character is a girl you could look up to. She is strong and determined. Loyal to her friends. There is no profane language, or sexual content in this book. There is a scene of childbirth that may be uncomfortable for younger children to read. There are a few characters who smoke cigarettes or a pipe. There is a death of a child, which may be very sad for children. I cried! My only complaint it that is was too short! :o) A great book!
