An interesting look at medieval life that might get some teens interested in the period. For me Johanna, the main character, was a bit inconsistent. Yes, she is literally and emotionally on a journey, but her jump to self-confidence and self-reliance needed more internal monologue to flesh it out. In general I would have enjoyed more details about the period, but I imagined Barnhouse wanted to keep the story moving along for younger readers.
