A Gathering of Days: A New England Girl's Journal 1830-1832
I read this book for a book report, and I had to write a letter to the author. This was a nice change of pace, the story is told in a diary format, which really helps you feel like you are in Catherine's life. Like many Newbery’s this is really a growing up story, but the historical fiction adds another interesting level. I really enjoyed learning some of the Old English words the author used. The Old English is this book was MUCH more understandable than how it was used in The Dark Frigate.
