    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 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 worl 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

    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 adventur 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

    This is a sad book but absolutely fascinating It is the story of John Brown and his daughter I never really knew anything about him, but his religious zeal tore apart his family and caused the deaths of most of his followers His daughter Annie is never quite good enough for him, and she goes with him to help when he puts his impossible plan for freeing slaves into action The elements of family dynamics and religious frenzy make the story very interesting.
