    I did enjoy this book. I loved the idea of the book and the historical fiction format and the author's note. I did not like how they never found the treasure, I thought that they should have had that as an ending instead of being able to live together. When they did live together, I was confused. Because they end up in the same house, are Ana Jai and Father married? Are Mary and Martha and George their kids? If Father had Deigo with Isabelle, was he cheating on Ana Jai? Is that why she was upset I did enjoy this book. I loved the idea of the book and the historical fiction format and the author's note.

    We visited the Kingsley plantation and the book was my child’s school reading. It was very interesting to read after having seen the plantation. We already had seen and discovered a lot before reading the book and the book was an add-on bonus. I don’t know if that would have been my feeling had we not seen the plantation first though...

    Starts out good, then just kind of fizzles out. Read it to my class. They really liked it, but wanted so much more at the end!
