An interesting story - very little sugar coating, good historicity.

This wasn't as good as I was hoping! I love this author and enjoy most of her books, but this one was not as satisfying. It may just be that there was not as much humor as in most of her books. This is a story of a girl who is independent and sticks up for herself, and that is a good thing. I enjoyed reading about how Becky learned to be self - sufficient and to do things that she originally considered to be "women's work." This story also included some history of the interaction between colonists and Native Americans before the Revolutionary War. So there is a lot to like in this book. However, the pacing was uneven, so that parts dragged and parts seemed to go too fast without giving enough information, and the ending was very abrupt, when I would have liked to know what happened next.
