I think that "Freedom Crossing" by Margaret Goff Clark is age appropriate and really good. You should check it out!

To be honest I'm not too picky on the era, I like Colonial, Civil war. But what makes it so hard to find a book to read is that I like YA HF books that have a love story. Big or small.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE "Nothing to Fear" and the "Primrose Way", they're both awesome stories with a love story in the middle. Does anyone know if any of her other books are similar to those two? :)

I have read two

:rolleyes: I read "The Second Bend in the River" and "Time Enough for Drums" by Ann Rinaldi. I did NOT like River. At all. I loved drums though. I wanted to read more by her but I'm really picky.
