The long struggle to reunite Addy's family finally ends.
  BLTSbraille | Oct 26, 2021 |
I had been wanting to read at least one book from this series for a very long time and I finally got that opportunity. I acquired this book at a flea market about a month ago and decided it was time to finally read it. Porter captures the world of Addy beautifully and the search for her family. It was a very touching story to be reading at this particular juncture where I had been reading all of these serious books about the Holocaust. The book was still sad in places, but overall the book was about starting over from the Civil War. I am very pleased that I read this book because it was well-written for children and will greatly benefit them in the process of learning about other time periods and other people. I had always wondered if this was a good series for children and now because I spent the time to read it I know that it is. ( )

A poignant but very realistic look at life for escaped slaves after the Civil War. Families have been torn apart by re-selling, war, and escaping, and now will they EVER be together again? Interlaced with hope. ( )

Many things are happening to Addy- she gets a chance to continue on in her schooling, but without her friend, Sarah, who has to stay home and do the washing with her mother. Auntie Lulu and baby Esther return, but Auntie Lulu dies, Uncle Solomon has already died, and baby Esther doesn’t remember her family any more. The changes are hard, but things get better. ( )
