    An Inspiring Novel

    This novel is truly an inspiring piece of work. Ann Rinaldi's ability to make you cry and laugh along with her characters is truly astounding! The vivid imagery, as well as the beautiful and fragile relationships between characters such as Miz Melindy and Caroline, make this story a unique masterpiece. I have found that Mrs. Rinaldi's fictional characters have instilled in me lessons that I will carry with me for years.

    this book was ok i guess....i had to read it for school and i was pretty surprised how it turned out. normally, i would NEVER pick up a historical fiction. This book however, was pretty good. I'm in eighth grade and had to read it for my history novel. There was intense family drama and i actually did not sleep through it :D (well, most of it). This book ended up pretty interesting and kind of helped me recap what i learned in school. good job ann rinaldi :D

    Cast Two Shadows by Ann Rinaldi published by Gulliver Books, Harcourt Inc.

    Cast Two Shadows interested me throughout the entire book. Ann Rinaldi really brought out what it was like for some southern families under control of the British during the Revolutionary War with her detail and characters. The story is told through the eyes of Caroline Whitaker who not only lives in a beautiful plantation in Camden but she is also part black. Colonel Rawdon of the British military has control over the Whitaker's home when Caroline receives news of her brother Johnny. Her and her black grandmother then go to get him and bring him home. Along the way they face many things then finally they find him and start heading home, and even then things are not peaceful. Full with many twists and turns this book will hold you to the pages leaving you not able to stop. So many things in this book shocked me but each shock was one that kept you reading on and on. The only true criticism I have toward this book is that at some points the things that happen can seem a little too predictable. Other than that this is a book that I would recommend to anyone who likes any sort of historical fiction book or novel. Cast Two Shadows will remain a memorable book for a long time. Not only with the story line but also with the themes to be strong through hard situations and maybe even to accept who you are. I really liked this book and I believe anyone else who reads it will too.
