After reading this book, I have decided to increase the variety of books I read. I learned that I not only have fun reading historical fiction, but I get a look into the past. And it helps that I am studying the Civil War at school as I was reading this book. I was really intrigued when I learned that the printing shop in this book actually did exist. My favorite part was when Nell didn’t have to live with her Uncle anymore, but my least favorite part was when Owen disappeared. Not only because he disappeared, but why he disappeared because it makes me sad to think about living back when not everyone agreed to racial equality.
