    • I enjoyed this book about a teenage girl going to a female seminary in 1860. It reminded me of when I went to college. I loved the details of how the girls lived and took classes and what they studied. The ending was unexpected, however, and I wish there had been a sequel, because I'd love to read more about Bethea, a very likeable character. Highly recommended!


    • 19th century historical fiction in which a young girl travels to Ohio to attend boarding school. Once at school she is faced by many challenges, including a terrifying fire which will test her courage.As I recall, this novel was based on Antioch or Oberlin.


    • This book gets five stars for being the first book of this genre I ever read and finished (I don't even remember how old I was). I remember really liking it, but I need to pick it up again sometime, I think.
