TallgrassTallgrass by Sandra Dallas
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if the ending was more believable.

The characters were well done and it was easy to get caught up in the story. I thought the main character, Rennie, was believable (it is not always easy to portray a young girl’s thinking). I appreciated the author’s portrayal of a time in our nation’s history when it was clear that hysteria could be spread easily and prejudice something that folks just did not question.

I also appreciated the author’s characterization of the Japanese’ polite manners, even to those that were treating them rudely, or worse.

However, some of the plot just didn’t seem realistic to me (especially the ending with too many surprises).

It did keep my interest, however, and I enjoyed reading this book to find out what would happen next.

About Theresa

I live in an old farmhouse in upstate New York (no, *not* the big city!) in the country with my family, two dogs, two calves, and two horses. I love to cross stitch, quilt, read, and look at needlework blogs :) and I love coffee *and* tea!
