This story by Cameron Dokey is about 18 year old Ginny Nolan, who becomes friends with Virginia Hightower, another girl who looks like Ginny, and shares the same name. However, while Ginny is running away from her cruel stepbrother and his wife, Miss Hightower is on her way to get married to a man she's never met before. Before they know it, they're trading their stories of woe, and then they decide to pull a little masquerade, with Ginny pretending to be Virginia, and Virginia pretending to be Ginny. But when Ginny meets Virginia's fiance, Nicholas Bennett, the next morning, she's a goner! She falls head-over-heels in love with Nicholas! A sweet historical romance, which got me crying, because it was really sad, especially at the end. I found the plot a bit lacking, but I liked it, though my favorite is San Francisco Earthquake, 1906, which I think is better. I could also relate to Ginny, for she was so vividly described, she seemed real.The emotion in this book was very high, and I recommend it to any teen looking for a great historical romance.To find out what happens next, read the book!Was this review helpful?

This is an excellent book, and I would highly recommend it. Except there are, however, some more mature parts in it, and therefore, i would have to definatly say this book is for 6th grade and up. This was well written, and the writing is exciting and romantic. Loved it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
