I've been wanting to read this book forever and ever since I saw it on the Bethlehem Books website because I've adored every single sweet, wholesome book from their site that I've read. So when I received this from a friend for Christmas, my joy knew no bounds.


My first impression was that it reminded me incredibly of another favorite Bethlehem book: They Loved To Laugh by Kathryn Worth and Brooklyn Rose by Ann Rinaldi. If you've ever read either of these and then read this book, you'll

Even though Sally Day had just consented to become his wife, Charles left for the North the next day.

At sixteen years old, Sally Day Hammon, a vivacious and incorrigible southern-belle, marries Charles Horne, a stoic and quite Yankee soldier from Connecticut. When she moves to New England with her husband, Sally Day finds that her new life is much different from her old life. Her free-spirited ways clash with the more repressed Northern lifestyle. Can Sally Day adjust to her new family and new s
Different from your typical young adult fiction book. The wedding happens towards the beginning and we get to see Charles and Sally Day as they work out their marriage in real life (as opposed to fairy tale life). Sally Day is from Maryland and has trouble adapting to the Northern ways of Charles' Connecticut family--who doesn't know quite what to make of her, either.
I read this book quite a few times when I was younger and reread it a few years ago. I loved the time period, characters, and story.
At the end of the American Civil War, a man and a woman are engaged to be married. A story of growth and love. Age appropriate for 12ish+.
Not a book I would usually read. The plot isnt very exciting.

Once she had two children, she began writing, first picture books, and then longer books. Later, when her two sons had grown up and left home, Mrs. Bradbury’s fiction focused mostly on contemporary issues ...more
