There really isn't too many shelves for me to tag this book in. This isn't really a romance at all,at least not this first book. I guess it's more of a family saga.

Amy is 13 when the story starts. She lives on a farm with her father and two brothers in New Zeland and in the 1800's there really isn't much for a girl to do other than help take care of her family until she gets married. When her father returns from a trip to Auckland he brings home a new wife.......a nasty piece of work that goes out of her way to make life hard on Amy. However when her stepmother's brother comes to spend he summer things start to look up for Amy.

I really thought that the author did a great job of painting the picture of what the time and area looked like and though we follow Amy through the mundane daily like of a farm girl it never got boring to read.
