Item description for Flight into Spring (Living History Library) by Bianca Bradbury...

Location: North America, United States Time Period: Modern Era (1700-1950 A.D.) , American Civil War New England 1860s Opposites: Sally Day Hammond is vivacious, tiny, coddled and Southern; Charles Horne is silent, tall, unbending and Northern. The American Civil War has just ended. And a marriage is to be made between these two? When Charles brings Sally Day back to live with his strict New England family, little wonder that tensions rise to the breaking point. But Sally Day has mettle; in the desperate honesty of this young couple's conflict, both young hearts may yet stretch and truly meld. In a setting of historical depth, skilled novelist Bianca Bradbury brings all the resources of a heartsearching realism to the predicaments of young married love. A book written for older youth.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flight into Spring ?

Family Reconstruction after the Civil War  Dec 13, 2006
This is a sweet, but challenging story about a very young woman from pro-Union Maryland who marries a Union soldier just after the Civil War. The story presents the conflicts of hard feelings and the need for healing between North and South in the context of family relationships. It seems quite unusual as stories usually end with a wedding without any details about the "happily ever after" part. Here, the emphasis is on this young bride's married life. Cultural and religious differences as well as bitterness from the war make life quite difficult for this young bride living with her husband on his parents' farm. The story makes an interesting backdrop to consider ideas about developing relationships, the give-and-take necessary in marriage and the idea of love and commitment. The book is lovely and quite engaging. Appropriate for ages 12 and up.
Adjustments of the newly married  Aug 29, 2006
Sally Day Hammond was a merry and spirited Southern girl who won the heart of a hardworking and reserved Federal soldier from Connecticut. The book tells of the life after their marriage, with his parents on their farm. Sally expected that everyone naturally thought and behaved the in the manner to which she was accustomed, and found it difficult to adjust to New Englanders and the life in Connecticut. She learns to give up things and learns how to love. This book made me cry in places, because I can identify with Sally, and learning to live with someone with a difference personality, who hasn't grown up with the same customs. For example, the first morning in Connecticut, Sally was awakened much earlier that she was used to, and when she went to help set the table for breakfast was told, "We don't use napkins with breakfast here." Sally went on to explain to her husband's parents that she couldn't eat that kind of breakfast, and would have toast and tea. They considered tea a special treat only to be served when the minister visited.

The book chronicles struggles, friendships, fights, and near the end, close to a town-wide scandal, all resulting from the turbulence of different lives and lifestyles brought together.

I was disappointed that the book didn't have more of a Christian emphasis, with Sally in one place saying that she thought that hell was a real place, but that she thought that "most of the stories were made up to scare little children."

Younger children may think this book is boring, but older ones may find the telling descriptions interesting, and new wives may be able to identify with some of the adjustments.
