I was probably doomed from the start.

My parents were both slender. My father was 6' 3" and almost too skinny to join the Navy. My mom was 5' 6" and not even 100 pounds. So once the baby fat wore off, I was a bit of a twig.

Three stars because it was well written, but OH MY GOODNESS did I hate the characters in this book and nearly every one of their fickle, flighty decisions. Much too contrived, and I usually love Marion Chesney's stories.

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.”
