Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Renee Farrah
Margret and her older sister Libby have been traveling for years, ever since their parents died. Now it is 1875, and they walk for days at a time and do chores in people's homes or farms to earn their keep until Libby decides it is time to move on. Margret never wants to leave the families they live with, and is already dreading the day Libby will make them move from their current location, Mrs. Fredriksen's sod house. They have made their way from St. Louis to Littleton, Colorado, and Margret is realizing she is old enough to have a say in Libby's decision to move. Margret loves living with Mrs. Fredriksen, and cherishes the trust and respect she gives to Libby and to her. When a tornado tears through the rural community, Margret discovers a wounded horse. She nurses the horse back to health, and makes a new friend named Cory who loves riding horses as much as she does. As Margret establishes a new life at Mrs. Fredriksen's, Libby becomes anxious to leave. This is a story about siblings; as Margret opens herself up to this new life, Libby must learn to let go of her old life. There are some farm and equestrian terms that may be unfamiliar to some readers. Reviewer: Renee Farrah

    Emma's reveiw on a fantastic book; Margret and Flynn

    It is a wonderful book full of charm and feeling! It is obvious why it was a Mark Twain Award nominee. I personally think it should have won. It tells a enchanting story of bonding between family and loved ones (humans or not). I love it!
