  3. Book does a good job of comparing city life to country life in the time period after the War of 1812 Accurate descriptions of historical time period coupled with a compelling story.


  4. The following book review of WINTERING WELL, by Lea Wait, was originally posted to the CCF website and is reposted here with permission Wintering Well, a middle grade novel by author Lea Wait, captures the reader s attention from the first page It s there that we read Cassie Ames journal entry dated August 29, 1819 The entry ends with, I am the cause of all that happened this day Please God, let Will live And please, God, forgive me And so we read on, wanting to find out what could an 11 year ol [...]

  6. This is one of those historical fiction books that stick in your mind at least for me, anyways The story begins when Cassie s brother, Will, injures his leg and must have it amputated This completely crushes Will because he longs to be a farmer Farms have no use for criples, as their father points out Needing to find a new place in life, Will and Cassie head for a new town where a doctor can make a wooden leg for Will The storyline is unique and does a good job at tying in historical details It [...]


  7. An interesting read for a Mainer set in Woolwich and Wiscasset at the time Maine becomes a state, it follows siblings Will and Cassie Ames after will is injured in an accident that Cassie believes she caused, and their lives are forever changed It was a good book, not a great book, mainly because it is intended for younger readers and therefore a tiny bit boring for this older reader who is used to lots of action and gore.


  8. Notes to self Heard the author speak at the library Attendee said that she always read this book with her 5th grade class, so we bought it May read some of it during Read Across America on March 2 Set in Wiscassett when Maine becomes a state, 1820 Diary entries sister and story about two siblings and their choices after a serious farm accident, dealing with disability, bullies, woman s place is in the home.


  9. It wasn t until I was half way through this that I realized I d read this one before Obviously it didn t stick with me A solid story about a farming accident that causes a young boy to lose one leg He, along with his sister, move into town to be near a doctor and both find ways their lives can grow.


  10. Takes place in Maine in the early 1600s A boy loses his leg and is of no use on his father s farm He moves to town where he learns to be independent and finds work as a wood carver Excellent depiction of the time period Quick read Ages 9 14.


  11. I read this book in fifth grade and I am a little foggy on the little details but I do remember that it was great and I could really get into the book and keep re reading this book I recomind this to most everyone.


  12. Loved this book simple, fictionally historically correct Would have loved to see the Wiscasset waterfront in those early days No red hot dogs there, I ll bet


  13. it is a wonderful and graceful book full of surprises and joyful thoughts its not dull at all and the cover my seem dull but dont judge a book by its cover







  14. This book is wonderful It is a heart warming tale, but also shows life as it was in the past It was a easy, yet well written read I liked it alot.


  15. Lou Ann, North River staff, July 2015, 4 stars Sweet story of how life changes in an instance and God can use tragedy tobring about something good.
