These books are out of print and I'm desperately looking for them.  If you happen to have any of the Salem Years, Willingburg Years or Charleston Years books by Nancy Rue, please let me know.  Of course, I've wish listed most of them, but thought I'd post just in case someone had some sitting around they weren't using any longer.  Thanks!

Oooo...I've never heard of those, but I'm looking for Nancy Rue books as well (the Lily Robbins series--check out the bottom of my post).  I may have to check into these other Rue books as well.  = )

We also liked the Rue history series.

Has anyone here read many of the Sisters in Time series? I picked one up because it looked similar to the American Girls series, which all of us have loved. I just this week realized that they were written by Colleen Reece, whose books I've always enjoyed.

I'd like opinions on the rest of the series. I've just finished Sarah's New World - the Mayflower one.

Thanks!

My daughter has many of the Sisters in Time series and loves them.  I have found the majority of them to be well-written.  We are also American Girl fans and have most of those, books, too.  I actually like some of the Sisters in Time books better because I think the characters are bit better developed and there seems to be more historical information.  They are usually pretty cheap new - I know I've seen them listed for around $3-$4 a piece and even less when you buy a set.

I'm not sure the entire series is written by the same person.  Also, we have found some of the books in the American Adventures series - same story with a different title and cover.  My daughter has enjoyed the American Adventure books, too.
