Each year I try to find a story that changes me. I picked this book up on a whim and discovered a golden treasure. My mind has been quiet and stagnant but is once again challenged.

I saw this book in my local b&n store, I was looking for someting different than what I was reading prior. What intriged me was getting to know Emily Dickinson, I only knew that she was a poet. Well what a surprise this book was, more that I thought it would be. I loved all the characters and all the meanings behind them. The book does show Emily as a recluse and from her we learn how her poetry was written. Miranda a main character is a delightful young girl who spends afternoons w/Emily. The book is mostly about Miranda,her growing, learning and becoming a women. The time period in which the book is based there are no phones the only way to communicate is letters, such a fascination. I am glad I read this book. I will remember Miranda for a very long time. I think most will enjoy this book.

This is a truly beautiful book, written lyrically and lovingly by an author who was herself a poet. Her research into Dickinson's poems and letters was extensive, and it shows. The Emily Dickinson that emerges is a complex and utterly believable figure. The Civil War atmosphere, both on and off the battlefield, is impressive. This is perfect for book clubs, and my own is reading it for June. This should be a classic, for lovers of poetry, history, and books in general.
