Having felt deprived all her life of schooling, friends, mother, and even her name by her twin sister, Louise finally begins to find her identity

Every time I read this book, I feel more emotions. Especially now, as an adult who knows a pair of twins whose lives uncannily resemble Louise and Caroline's.
It is a story worth reading but it disappoints overall. Spends way too much time on the childhood of the main character and not enough time in her adulthood. In my mind, some issues are left unresolved. The locale, an island in the Chesapeake Bay, is dealt with very well and really brings home life on the island of Rass. I liked the main character, Sara Louise (Wheeze), and wished to learn more about her as a midwife in an Appalachian Mountain town of Truitt. Maybe in another book???
I read this when I was younger and re-reading it now, it still held some of it's appeal. The characters, plot, and setting are all interesting; they just don't write books like this one much any more. I did find Sarah Louise "Wheeze" just a tad bit overdone on the poor-me-I'm-a-martyr thing, which made her hard to like sometimes. But easy to identify with, in some other ways. Anyway it's a quick read and not bad.
my favorite childhood book, glad I was able to find it!
The book is wonderful, but the paperback is of poor quality - not a problem of the seller but of the publisher.
Real characters, feelings, struggles, & life issues make this a real gem of a book. Yes, it's geared in many ways to a younger female audience. But Ms. Paterson has successfully created something special for young & old, alike. I would share this with my daughter or granddaughters.
This is one of those books I never got around to reading. I misinterpreted the title as a love story. This is a very entertaining tale.
A must for anyone who had experienced sibling rivalry. Also a fascinating look at the culture of an island - bound waterman society. The protagonist is so well drawn that I felt, by the end of the book, as if she were a personal friend. I will look for more books from Katherine Patterson.
