Although I found the title… kind of weird (lame), I found the story good and interesting. I only read it out of boredom.
It takes place in America 1600 (or 1700), about Sam Meeker who left his home in Redding, Connecticut, a town loyal to the king, to fight with the rebel army (the English), he places his family in a very difficult position. The story teller is Sam’s little brother, Timothy Meeker.
What I learnt in this book:-
I learnt a lot about the revolution war, as well as how the people use to live in those days. It’s a great mix of fact and fiction.I also learnt some new vocabularies.
My opinion on the characters:-
Umm… nothing special. I think… it’s your ordinary everyday people (except it was in the olden days). The characters aren’t the type for you to fell in love with them.
What I felt after reading the book:-
I was so moved! I couldn’t hold back my tears as I shut the book… It was so sad… big difference from the title.
I will give this book… 4 stars.
