    "This is a great book. It has a wonderful message, it's a historical fiction set around the civil war. It is a good way for children to see what life was really like back then, and the struggles some people had to endure. My daughter really liked this book, and it made her think, which is great!"

    "I like a lot of dialogue in my fiction, and this book doesn't disappoint in that regard. It vaguely reminds me of Dickens in some ways. Parts of it get a little monotonous, but overall a good read. I got it for my grandson, but he hasn't started it yet. I think he'll like it."

    "I have not read this book yet but I have already came across it a couple of times before. This book was also given to my little nephew a couple of years ago too if I can remember. I guess this would be one of the best books to recommend to children as long as there is a lesson to be learned as you go along with it page by page."
