Well Done!! I enjoyed reading about Violet and the way she found the courage to venture out and find her mother. Her aunts were wonderful and fun. I also enjoyed reading all about the world fair. I had not realized all that it was.
There is one criticism I had and it was that fact that Violet used deception on her father to gain what she wanted. This is a christian book, published by a christian publishing company and as a christian myself I wasn't comfortable with this aspect of the book.
A delightful book. Lot's of humor with history included in a way that makes you feel you are living it. Lynn Austin is one of my favorite authors. Even when she is very serious there is always something to keep you glued to the story. I want to collect as many of her books as I can. Sarah
This book is one of my absolute favorites! The story was just so beautifully written and I loved the connection I felt with Violet! By the time I finished this book, she was more then just a favorite character, she was and is a friend!
I loved how she slowly "bloomed" and how she really was a violet in the end...gosh I love this story! It is just so unbelievably powerful and it is even more so now that I am thinking about all I learned throughout it.
I recommend this book to all! I have bought it for a thirteen years old as well as an eighty year old and both adore it! It is a fantastic book and would be such a shame to miss out on! Lynn Austin is one of my top favorite authors thanks to this priceless story! I highly recommend it...it is worth every penny!
This book was absolutely AMAZING!!! I could hardly put it down. From the first chapter, I was intrigued. If you are looking for a bit of adventure, romance, mystery, and a lot of spunk, this is the book for you. Fantastic job, Austin!
