Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
If you saw Nellie McClung in your small town, you might think her to be a typical young mother trying to raise two children and run a household. Nellie McClung, living in the early 1900s and fighting for women's rights, is anything but typical. This historical novel gives the reader insight into the lives of several of the women involved in the nationwide fight for a woman's right to vote and own property. This story is told from Mrs. McClung's perspective as she attends meetings, raises her family and writes her stories. Adolescent female readers will enjoy this story of courage, creativity and independence, while learning some of the historical background of the social issues. The author has written other books about this character including Nellie L. and Nellie's Quest. 1999, Stoddart Kids/Stoddart Publishing, $5.95. Ages 10 to 14. Reviewer: Joyce Rice
School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-Part three of this trilogy continues the fictionalized account of the life of Nellie McClung, a famous Canadian author and pioneer of the women's equality movement in the early 1900s. Although an interesting story overall, the book lacks solid character and plot development. There are large jumps in time between scenes and chapters. One scene follows the birth of Nellie's fourth child, the next has him at six months, and the next at several years old. To her credit, Crook has done a fine job of incorporating factual information and there are extensive notes for each chapter. However, as a whole, the narrative is tedious and too disjointed to hold readers' interest.-Shilo Halfen, Chicago Public Library Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
