WONDERFUL book!!!!! Beautiful writing- I was drawn right in to the world of the book. The characters stuck in my mind for weeks after I finished reading. A great book if you like a little thrill and mystery!
It lacked a bit of 'spark' but was a very exciting window into the times. Overall a very good YA mystery/historic fiction read.
