I love this book. Im a really big history snob, and I thought this book was great. Some things in the book werid. But Its one of my favorite books

Koller has done her research of life in the 1600s and beautifully portrays the Native Americans' beliefs in this historical romance. It's really good!

This book was amazingly breathtaking. A page turner. It was definately one of the best historical fiction books I've read recently. It is mainly about the daugter of a missionary from England. She decides to learn the Indian language to help with the trading,and in doing so she forges a bond with one of the Indian girls and also the mysterious Medicine man of their village. As she begins to realize that they may not be savages after all, the colonists she live with prosocute her. All this makes for one of the best books you'll read.

Awesome. I've read it many times. I even convinced my mother to read it and she loved. She then got a bunch of her students to read it (she's a teacher). Everyone I know who has read it loved it and is now one of their favorite books. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good historical fiction.

This book was really terrific. I love stories about people of the New World and their encounters with 'savages' and this book is just that! It tells the story of Rebekah, a puritan girl who befriends Native Americans, to the distress of her colony. Not thinking of the outcome, she falls in love with one and doesn't know what to do. She is being sent back to England, but with the help of a friend, goes where she truly wants to be. The ending is the best part of the book, and it really is excellent.

I read this book for the first time in 8th grade and loved it. Since then I have read it many times and loved it more and more everytime. I dont know if I can convince you all to read this book but I suggest you do. It takes an unexpected turn at the end.
