I loved this series. This is book 2 and it would be nice to start from the beginning, but the jest of the story can be picked up from any place in the series. This was just a very factual, entertaining and beautiful read. Michael Phillips is a fantastic author and i found myself hanging on the words from each page. A lovely series to become involved in.

This story is unusual and well developed. It takes place at the end of the Civil War and really shows how bad it was in the south for a lot of people. The characters and action are vivid in the problems they have. Michael Phillips is a good story teller and this series and the ones that follow are very good and will hold your attention. In the first 2 books, you wonder if the girls on the front of the book will make it, since there is so much danger at that time. The situation in this book is one of desperation. You won't be able to put it down.

I really love this series and the others to follow.

I absolutely love all of Micheal Phillips' books. This is another page turner. He depicts and unlikely bond between 2 girls growing up in the South as the Civil war ends. The girls have to grow up too fast, taking on responsibilities of male adults as well as female adults. Running a large plantation isn't easy!

This book picked up right where the previous one in the series left off. I really enjoyed it. The story of Katie, a plantation owners daughter, and Mayme, the daughter of a slave, is heartwarming as they continue to run the plantation after their parents are all killed. They not only become best friends, but family as well. They open their home to others who are in need, while they continue to fool the townspeople into thinking there are adults still around. Their antics will make you laugh, but their love and friendship for each other will warm your heart. I will definitely read more books by Michael Phillips.
