I read this book in elementary school and remember really enjoying the idea that you could climb down into a root cellar and then climb out into the 1860 s I loved the whole theme that it doesn t matter when you come from but only where you belong especially when you are young and have lost your parents I picked it up again recently out of nostalgia and it brought back a lot of memories

Loved it Reading this book was a truly delicious experience Sometimes a reader just clicks with an author s style I knew from the first few pages that I was smitten with Ms Lunn s wordweaving and it was this almost than the story itself that truly captivated me about this bookBut the story is a good one The blending of history War Between the States and fantasy a modern girl is able to travel from present day to the 1860s via a magical root cellar could have been a disaster but Lunn manages to pull it off The changes in time and place 1980s Canada 1860s Canada 1980s New York 1860s New York Virginia Washington DC could have also proven a huge burden for a less skilled author but again it all manages to work here The silly little concerns of youth that are none the less immensely important in that moment are handled with sensitivity as are the heart wrenching accounts of wartime as childhood is robbed from the young soldiers And while the causes of the war were perhaps a bit too simplified and President Lincoln portrayed a tad too saintly overall I think it s a fine piece of historical fiction but could be read simply as a good story too The characters are all vivid the descriptions are fabulous especially the lovely Canadian countryside and there s a hint of romance and a lot of adventure I also think this is a good choice for young people struggling with finding a sense of belonging whether it be to a new city or a new family foster kids adoptions etcAt heart it s about growing up learning what you believe in where you belong becoming the sort of person you want to be even though as our heroine says it s HARD to be a person sometimes It s not easy but ultimately friendship gets us throughI m so grateful to the Children s Book Group for introducing me to this Canadian author I ll definitely look for from the talented pen of Janet Lunn
