What the community says about An Unlikely Friendship
- "This is a very interesting book that explores a friendship between Mary Todd Lincoln and a black seamstress who was a former slave. It's an interesting look at their relationship in the context of the Abolitionist movement in the United States."
- "This is a sad story about the friendship between Mary Todd Lincoln and her dressmaker, a former slave named Elizabeth Keckley. Although the book is targeted to kids in middle school, adult readers will also be deeply moved. It will appeal to readers of all ages who are interested in Civil War history."
- "I would recommend Secrets of the Realm, it's about a girl blamed for her uncle's death, Annie, fifteen, is running away. Knowing the dangers she will face in the streets of eighteenth-century London, she disguises herself as a child. His life in the streets is cut short when he becomes Captain Hawke's cabin boy. Annie must not only work with the motley crew of renegades and knights of the Kingdom, but must also prevent her superstitious shipmates from discovering that she is a girl. Annie promises that she will never leave the Kingdom, where dreams are persecuted, broken lives can improve, and secrets are kept as memories in an old drawer of a desk."
- "This was an enjoyable take on Miss Bingley! Since the loss of both parents, the Bingley children were raised alongside Darcy and Georgiana at Pemberley which would have an impact on her personality to some degree. Being so close, as they grew older, Caroline was very protective of her 'family'. Unfortunately, Louisa didn't listen when they tried to persuade her not to marry Mr. Hurst. "
