My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I've been on a reading break for too long!!! This book took me awhile to read only because of my super busy schedule. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Annie's story of how she came from rags to riches! Her bravery in leaving her service position to escape to what she hoped would be a better life in America kept my interest the entire time. The historical accuracy of the book was also a breath of fresh air and the author really put a lot of time and effort into getting it as right as possible.
This book has several ups and downs and the story line flowed freely. I loved the note at the end about how the characters will make appearances in other novels so that the reader can still follow their story. Overall, this was a fulfilling summer read!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review in exchange for my honest opinion. Many thanks to NetGalley, Barbour Publishing, and Nancy Moser for allowing me to review this story!
