I finished it on Christmas Eve morning, amidst the occasional howls and cries and jubilations of young children.

There were lots of mentions of this book at Modern Mrs Darcy, and I was curious. I'm so glad I read it! The characters are extremely engaging; they just jump out of the page at you. I don't know if I've found a more lovable girl than Swede since Anne Shirley. (That's saying a lot!) The main character is Reuben, and his inner monologue combined with his loyalty to his family made for a memorable brother. The book gets a bit hazy somewhere in the middle, but I had to see the way this one turned out, so I kept on reading. I can easily see why people were calling it their favorite book of all time.
