I give this book 4.5 stars. This is the sequel to Roller Skates which won the Newbery sometime in the 1930's. This book is SO much better than it's predecessor! When I read Roller Skates I was disappointed because it was hard to believe that it was written by the same person who wrote Maggie Rose: her Birthday Christmas (which I love) but with this book it was easy to see that the person who was inspired to write a book as beautiful as Maggie Rose could also write The Year of Jubilo.

"I think friendship needs to be written about. It is a solemn and a lovely thing, and I think it deserves a lovely service said over it like marriage. That would keep you from accumulating too many friends of the kind that never really belong."

We revisit Lucinda from Roller Skates, several years older and suffering from the recent loss of her father. This has a very different feel from Roller Skates. Older and less exuberant. But Lucinda is still Lucinda and it’s a beautiful book. [Oct. 2008]
This was a clean, refreshing story of family togetherness. It wasn't a "gripping" story, but was very well written. I found myself wanting to underline sentences and phrases constantly.

Every sentence is a feast of words - gives a new perspective on the Civil War and the aftermath in the everyday lives of those who survived.

I missed New York, and Lucinda being totally crazy; but as a book, I liked this better than Roller Skates.

I didn't care much for Roller Skates, but I liked this a lot.
