It’s the early 1800s, and Abbie’s sister, Sarah, is a proper young lady who loves needlework. She has already made a sampler displaying her neat and even stitching.

What do you do if you’re a girl in the 1800s who hates sewing, but it’s a skill every girl is expected to master? For Abbie Rogers, needlework lessons and stitching a sampler are frustrating – until she comes up with a plan to show her individuality. A heart-tugging story set in early America that not only makes history come to life but shows how important it is to be yourself.

I think historical fiction is my favorite so this was right up there. It is a great book about a young girl learning sewing techniques in 1822. I especially enjoyed the afterward. Great for little girls. PB really liked what Abbie put on her sampler and requested the book again based on that.

I read this because it takes place in western New York, where I grew up. A girl would prefer to read rather than sew samplers. I can relate to that!
