Why this book?:
I saw it on Wowbrary and it looked interesting.
The author says this isn't a historical fiction, but by my way of thinking it really is. You can tell it is set in a past time based on a variety of factors including the setting, circumstances, laws, etc. It's not based on true events, but it is inspired by them...
Anyway, beyond that. The story tells of three children who come from tough situations.They meet and find that 1) the world isn't such a lonely place as they thought and 2) they can help each other to do what needs doing/get where they want to go.
Overall I found the book a cute and interesting diversion.
