The author has the ability to lead the reader into a world of the past, as if it was from today. One will want to visit for example, Twin Oaks, and is expected to almost meet the main character there. Captivating reading.
I loved this book, the trials poor Jesse and her family went through are so sad and true to life at that time I am sure. But I am anxious to read the other books belonging to this series and cannot find them!?
