    "I love this series. It is full of bizarre gothic pseudo-homosexual vampire novel. Wear some black and a frilly shirt and give yourself a pretentious name. Have fun with it."

    "I first learned about this holiday from an American Girl book, ironically enough, so seeing it here with all of the history behind it was a lot better. I like how it centers on just four people and really goes into detail about their lives. "

    "Another good book about the country during the Civil War, even if it fictional. It was interesting to read it from a woman's point of view and in an entirely different part of the war. Absorbing without being sappy, even with the concentration of family instead of war."
