it was amazing
bookshelves: historical, ya

Some books are just instant five for me.

What I absolutely adored in this historical was Marnie's character. That's what I would call a true, strong person. She never underestimated herself that as a woman in the medieval times she could not do work that is connected to men, yes maybe she had to give more of her energy but still, she gave it and did it. When her father had a stroke and stayed paralysed she went as his replacement to ensure her family still has the place to live in. She thatched the roof, fixed the plumb, carried whatever, cut wood, think of anything and she would do it. She made many sacrifices for her family and that only strengthened her person. She had to go through ugly situations. But not in any situations did she lose her dignity.

The author really goes in depth, of course speaking in terms of young adult genre, into examining women strength, physical or mental capabilities. As a hard working person, gentle caregiver, a philosopher, she portrayed an inspiring female character.

Also, this book has a priest who is, imagine that, compassionate! And is a positive character. Who would tell that those kinds exist in the clergy (in medieval times)! The last but not at all least it has an outstanding deaf character. Very peculiar and sometimes creepy but so much part of the book...

Recommend for all young women who like to feel that are capable and strong - so to all! ;)

*content: has a non-explicit rape, shadowed lovemaking and a witch trial
