Cover Rating: A
This is an interesting historical book written in fictional diary formatting about a young woman who doesn’t want to be “sold off” into marriage by her father. She fights at every turn, using her sharp wit and mischievous nature. This is a telling book into a time of history we’ve not experienced, where young woman had little to no say about their futures. It makes a person wonder how many other young maidens decided to fight against their prospects of arranged marriages to wealthy men old enough to be their fathers or grandfathers.
The cover is eye-catching and offers an accurate description of what readers should expect to find within the book.
