Diary of an Eccentric reviewed Come Juneteenth by Ann Rinaldi for the U.S. Civil War Reading Challenge 2011. Here’s an excerpt:
Come Juneteenth is a fast-paced novel that grabbed my attention right from the start. Why are Luli and Gabe making their way across the prairie in search of a young woman they both love? Why did they have to conceal Sis Goose’s freedom, when she loved them and wasn’t likely to leave? The answers to these questions pulled at my heart, and Rinaldi doesn’t pave the way for a happy ending this time…but that’s what makes this book so good.
