Book Spotlight: Freckles

by Gene Stratton-Porter

When I was growing up, we read books together as a family, taking turns reading out loud. Although sometimes "Come here; let's read" brought groans, I always ended up enjoying it. One of the books I remember reading this way was Freckles, by Gene Stratton-Porter. I've read it on my own since then, and loved it just as much. This book shows the importance of character in a way I don't often see in a novel. I plan to reread it again--probably several times.

I highly recommend this book! It's available for only $0.99 on the Kindle--and you can find used copies fairly cheap.

The sequel, Girl of the Limberlost, is also worth reading.
