The book was very well written. However, it was hard to follow and slow at times. It tracks the life of a young girl trying to survive during harsh times. A serious illness has taken over the town and she is fighting to continue to make money and survive. It is historical fiction. I loved the symbolism and how well it was written, but it was a little slow at times.
