    This is the story of the time spent just before John Brown s raid on Harper s Ferry from the preceptive of his 15 year old daughter, Annie Annie and her sister in law spent several months at the Kennedy Farm where John Brown was stratigizing and assembling his men Annie struggles with the love hate relationship that she and her siblings have with her father and his God like attitude in his mission to free the slaves.I was able to visit the privitaly owned Kennedy Farm this past fall and had read other account about Annie Brown s time spent here Combining the visit and this book truly brought history to life A good book for teen readers.

    Having read a good deal about John Brown, I found it very interesting to read about him and his family from a different point of view Would the Civil War have come about without John Brown s Raid Perhaps But it was a precipitating factor, as it brought the eyes of the nation to the issues surrounding slavery.

    Very interesting especially since I m headed to Harper s Ferry this weekend that s why I read it John Brown was certainly a fanatic Glad he wasn t my father, he sure wasn t nice to his bazillion children.

    2 1 2 stars for me I was interested in the beginning and by the end I was mildly interested Overall it was just ok to me I probably enjoyed reading the history at the end of the book than the book itself.

    Ann Rinaldi takes the setting all the way back to a time of slavery and troubles Annie, a teenage girl, doesn t have the average life Her father, an overly devoted Christian and unforgiving man, has begun a force against slavery Having had past trouble with her father, Annie only goes for perfection and satisfaction, but has emotional trouble and breakdowns on the way Having to live a secret life in a small house full of secrets, slaves, and fear only makes stress worse for Annie From moving to her mom s house over to her dad s secret plotting base, Annie has now lived under a fake name under a fake reason of why she is where she is now The next door neighbor, a mind reader and spiritual connector, adds spice to the story as she constantly goes over to the house because she senses something is up Annie needs to keep watch over the house and their secret plans One of the hardest things though, after growing close to everyone, is her knowing that she s probably going to be the only one out of there to pass down the story of every one s lives in that very house I really loved the fortune teller and spiritual speaker in the book I thought it went very well with the plot because she was every one s weakness, yet everyone else thought she was a crazy lady The secret family name and lifestyle wasn t enough to fool their neighbor I ve never read any types of books that were related towards history, especially before the civil war I really enjoyed it though, because it got me connected with the slaves and the problems they needed to deal with before slavery ended Others would love to read this book, because it makes this history topic very interesting and dramatic It has a variety of characters, which all somehow need to come together in one house to stop slavery under a false name and life What s not to love

    I knew this was a high school level Scholastics book when I began reading it, so I was quite surprised at how much I enjoyed it I ve been trying to educate myself a little bit on Harpers Ferry, and this is the story of John Brown s 15 year old daughter Annie and the things that she witnessed in the months leading up to that fateful day in October 1859 when her father attacked the Federal Armory in Harpers Ferry, helping to excite the events that lead to the Civil War It s historic fiction, so of course the conversations and motivations of the characters can only be speculated at But I thought Rinaldi did an excellent job of creating a very compelling, as well as educational, story that I found difficult to let go of Her writing was quite poetic at times, and I was moved by the growing sense of foreboding inherent in each page As I finished the book, I felt sad for the real person Annie Brown, and how helpless she must have felt as she had to stand by and watch as events much larger than herself shaped her future It s definitely worth the read.

    This is the story of Annie Brown, a daughter of John Brown It covers the period just before his raid on Harper s Ferry, and how he and those working with him lived in a farmhouse for some time, gathering strength, weapons and working out just how they were going to conduct their raid Annie was alone to do women s work and to serve as a look out for the group, although she was not going to be taking part in the raid itself nor in its planning.John Brown was a fanatic, period In today s world he d be placed along with the various militants who blow themselves up and kill innocent people I think there would really be a major question about his very sanity in what he did, the way he treated people, and what he planned to do.Opposing slavery Fine.Being an abolitionist Fine.Refusing to listen to people who knew the mission was basically a suicide attack Stupid.Killing innocent people and trying to set up your own government with its own army Unacceptable.Still, it s a worthwhile book to read and another one showing how good a writer Ann Rinaldi is.

    This story is everything we Readers come to expect of Rinaldi s writing beautiful, rich, compelling Like all of her stories, this one is deeply rooted in historical fact, with only the order of certain events changed up a bit, and the personal thoughts of the characters for the most part fictitious The people and events surrounding John Brown are brought to vivid reality with Rinaldi s words she breathes new life into long dead people, helping the Reader to understand them in a way that few history books can do Annie is a totally sympathetic heroine, and as a Reader, I could not help but feel really frustrated with John Brown, as we are supposed to If you know anything about John Brown, then you ll know the end is tragic It is made so by the Author s beautiful, simple writing style, and I felt absolutely devastated for Annie.G damn is used once, but there is no other content.

    Though this was an excellent book, I couldn t help but be frustrated at the stupidity of John Brown Did that man actually think that he was doing a good work Killing people is never a good work Freeing the slaves was a noble cause, but I think he shot himself in the foot in the way he went about it Mine Eyes Have Seen is also really sad I so wanted Annie to just get Dauphin and leave before something bad happened Unfortunately, they were too loyal and they paid dearly for it.The romance in this book was fresh and sweet, and not overdone just enough to keep you wishing for

  10. says:

    It s an overall interesting story with little character development Not much going on aside from the main plot and there is no real climax to it but it still presents an unusual viewpoint on the slave trade during that era Find the Pa character entirely worthless as a parent and actually don t feel the least bit of sympathy for and of his failed endeavors Annoyed for sure the way the family accepts him as he is and think that it s just unbelievable that anyone could follow Pa s crazy adventures.
