Week 9: A Northern Light

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ Thoroughly enjoyed this book. My word-nerd self secretly devoured the heroine’s penchant for picking a word out of her mother’s dictionary every day and word dueling with her best friend. Set in the early 1900s, we watch Mattie struggle to find herself, and reconcile her passion for writing and education against the backdrop of the times and values of her family. Beautifully written, rich story that pulled me right in to an emotional attachment to the characters. You know it was great when you were very, very sad that it ended.
