's review

really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, 4-stars, arc
Recommended for: History lovers, 10+, Teachers, Homeschoolers

I found the story charming and very educational. I learned a lot about General Lafayette's role in the American Revolution.

I liked Clara's personality and the evolving relationship with her stepmother, cousin, and Dickon, who used to tease her. I think if there had been a little more interaction with each of those characters, it would have been even better.

I think fans of Laura Ingalls' books, Anne of Green Gables, and Larkrise to Candleford would enjoy this.

Some young people might feel this is too much like a history lesson than a fun story. But it is a great way to teach history. And I happen to enjoy historical fiction!

I received a free advanced digital copy through BeachBoundBooks and this is my unbiased review. I do not know the author or anyone involved with it personally.
