Reviews - What do customers think about Rachel's Story: A Southern Girl in Pre-Civil War Boston?

Rachel's Story  Dec 5, 2006
I am a big fan of the transcendentalists, and thouroughly enjoyed Rachel's Story. It is a story of a southern girl who finds herself in Boston during the 1850's. It's very entertaining to find characters such as Walt Whitman, Louisa May Alcott, and Emerson come alive. It's a wonderful blend of historical figures and fiction. Rachel's trials throughout the story also make for a great read. I would definitely reccomend it.
A wonderful surprise  May 29, 2006
Someone gave me this book for a present and I wasn't sure if I would like it but it turned out to be really wonderful and beautifully written. The story itself is interesting and full of warmth and intelligence. I read alot of history and think the book is very accurate for those early American times. The main pleasure though is in the characters--especially Rachel of course--since they are so authentic and the dialogue is never stilted or false. You really feel for Rachel and what she is experiencing. Another good part of this book is that you get a closer look at an important part of American history and the thinkers who meant so much to the heritage of our country. I wish I could find more books like this--good for both the heart and the head.
Wonderful!  May 11, 2006
This is Marian Coe's best book to date. She takes you back into a period of history that is filled with poets, philosopers, writers and intelects of the time. She weaves these characters into the story envolving them intimately in the life of her protagonist, Rachel, making them truly three dimensional and real. This was a very good story with some touching insights into the personalities of some of this country's greatest thinkers. I definitely recommend it.
An intriguing & conceptual reinvention of America in the 1850's & one young woman's discovery among great intellects of the era  Apr 9, 2006
Rachel's Story: A Southern Girl In Pre-Civil War Boston by Mariana Coe is an intriguing and conceptual reinvention of America in the 1850's and one young woman's discovery among great intellects of the era. Including Elizabeth Peabody, Henry David Thoreau, Louisa May Alcott, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, Rachel's Story is an intriguing and knowledgeably written novel of what would most certainly have been a life many might now be envious of. Rachel's Story is very strongly recommended to all general readers and transcendentalist enthusiasts for its intuitive and intriguing conceptual work of historical fiction.
hardships of women in the civil war  Apr 23, 2005
i think that it is very touching and it will inspire many to read more about their history to learn more about it and the people who lived back then.
