What I liked best about this book:
- The heroine is capable and tries her best to take care of herself and those around her.
- She is not obsessed with her love interest.
- It's a good way to introduce readers to that part of American History and how the public reacted to it: fleeing, quackery, actual medicine...
- It shows how you own life can change radically with little warning and the flexibility and strength needed to survive.
I probably won't reread this book, but I do recommend it to anyone interested in American History and in strong heroines.
