This was my first read by Susan Anne Mason. The cover and title are what drew me to this book -- I am of Scotch/Irish descent, so anything that is Scotch/Irish attracts me. :)
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I love that Brianna is a girl that knows what she wants and wants to further her education. I empathized with her relationship with her sister Colleen. What a spoiled brat!! But that seems to be the way of it. Brianna's relationship with her father is not a great one, but the times were different and the way parents and children communicated and related to each other was different in that time. I love to read about these differences .. makes me thankful for living in these times.
While the outcome/end of the book might have been a tad predictable, the book was still very enjoyable and it's always fun getting to the end. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.
