it was ok

Dunno what it was, but I just couldn't get into this one... maybe I'll try it again later when I'm in more of a gritty historical mood. There wasn't much wrong with the book itself, it just never hooked me. I picked it up several times to read a few chapters, only to put it down for awhile and buzz through something else.

I liked Alex well enough (tho' his stepfather is a rather stereotypical villain), but Polly and her world didn't really come to life for me, and she didn't completely gel as a character in my head. I *wanted* to like her, and at first she seemed ready to come at the new mill Master with an open mind, but then she'd fall back into stereotyped Paranoid (yet Plucky!) Union Leader.

Ah, well.
