it was ok

Ah, yes, another school book. Don't you just adore books that you are set to read in a certain number of time, and if you do not you are in trouble? It really can put a damper on things. This is one of the more interesting books I've had to read, the story itself was pretty short, although the book was a few hundred pages I believe. Hannalee is a girl growing up in the Confederate state of Georgia in the Civil War. When Yankee soldiers come and kidnap all people at the mill she works at, she is transported to the Union states where she is sent to work for a family who both she despises, and they despise her. Her mother's last words, "Turn homeward, Hannalee," set her with the goal of escaping the family and running south back to her mother. It's a cute-ish story, not one of my favorites.
