Kim Vogel Sawyer was one of those books. This is a book set in the early 1900’s and the main character Caroline Lang is working to help end child labor. I have not read a lot about the child labor movement and found the book fascinating as it opened ideas and events to me that I had no idea about before.
Some other thoughts I’ve had about this book:
- It is very Christian. It is uplifting but has a strong Christian theme where the main characters are trying to bring others to Christ.
- The story is written from many different characters’ perspectives. It was a little disjointed at times, but made it interesting.
- There is a definite feminine tone to the book….sometimes it’s a little overly girly.
- The writing is fluid and well-edited.
- The love story in this book drove me a little crazy sometimes; it felt drawn-out and overdone.
- The over-all story line was convincing and didn’t feel forced.
- This was not a book that I couldn’t put down but I enjoyed reading it casually in my free time. It was easy to pick right up from where I left off.
