What a great piece! This book is a great glimpse of not only a young Polish girl, but of the great heart and will of the Polish people. Being Polish myself, I was honored to feel like my ancestors were a part of this. Read full review

This book talks about a girl who is forced into a marriage that she does not want to be in. She is only 15 years old and she gets married to a man who has 3 children already. I recommend this book to girls who like this series and teachers who could use this book to help teach in their classrooms. Read full review
