Just Jane (book review)

Just Jane is a historical novel by William Lavender. As the story begins, Lady Jane Prentice is newly arrived in the American Colonies from England. She keeps hearing about some sort of problem going on between England and the Colonies, but everyone she asks is elusive. Jane feels they're hiding something from her. When her own family splits into two sides, Jane must face a huge choice: is she still a daughter of England or is she an American now?

This is a wonderful story, and I didn't want it to end. I think I'd like to read others in this series (entitled Great Episodes).

I give this book 10 out of 10 stars.

(This book was read for school, not for one of the challenges.)

You inspired me to look up some other reviews on this book. One mentioned that it was refreshing to read a book set in the South during the Revolutionary War rather than the Civil War. I thought that was a very interesting observation. Another review called this book "historical fiction at its best," so your 10 out of 10 rating seems right on!

Jean--
Were the reviews on Amazon or on other peoples' blogs? Or on both? Just curious! I'd like to know if anyone else read it!

Thanks!

Annie,

The reviews were on Amazon. Some were from library journals, but others were from regular readers like yourself. Maybe you should think about submitting one there.

Cheers,
Jean
