A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Actually not my favorite time in history, I also had a bit of a problem relating to the characters as it was from a younger point-of-view.

I did appreciate the author’s notes on the characters as well as the time period included at the end though. Definitely worth the read; personally, I just couldn’t connect.
