Flamingnet Student Book Reviewer PS
As a young woman of no means in 20th century England, Addy
has very few options for her future. When a rich classmate
taunts her in school, Addy leaves and becomes the maid of
mysterious local man, Mr. Greenwood. While in Mr.
Greenwood's house, Addy comes across a time machine in a
locked room. She is transported back to the 13th century
where she is mistaken for a Lady. Addy is given the chance
to live the life of the rich, and she couldn't be happier.
But as time passes, she learns that the life of a wealthy
lady is just as difficult as hers was. As she comes to
this realization, Addy has to make a choice between staying
a Lady in the 13th Century or returning back to the future
and her family.
As soon as I picked up Wildwing, I got
caught up in the story. I'm a huge fan of all historical
fiction novels, and this story combined both the 13th and
20th centuries. The idea of time travel made the story
more interesting. Addy was a great character to follow and
I looked forward to all of her adventures. The only thing
that bothered me about the novel was the way it was
written; it's better suited for younger readers. But the
story was excellent and I'm looking forward to reading more
by this author.
