Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Orphaned Matilda is not at all pleased when she arrives at Blood and Bone Alley to become an assistant to Red Peg the Bonesetter. She is a religious, well-educated girl who cant picture herself doing dirty chores or helping sickly patients.

Each day is very different from her former quiet life. Matildas not used to being around so many people who are coming and going, laughing and eating. Not one of them seems interested in prayer or study.

Self-centered Matilda thinks no one understands her. But Peg does, and gives her time to get used to this new way of life and teaches her through kindness and friendship. Matilda is as surprised as anyone when she begins seeing the world around her in a different way.

Synopsis:

Fans of Cushman's witty, satisfying novels will welcome Meggy Swann, newly come to London with her only friend, a goose named Louise. Meggy is appalled by London; it's dirty, noisy, full of rogues and thieves, and difficult to get around innot that getting around is ever easy for someone who walks with the help of two sticks. But just as her alchemist father pursues his Great Work, Meggy finds herself pursuing her own transformation, and in the end, discovers Elizabethan London also has gifts in store for her.

Includes a Reader's Guide.

Synopsis:

Now in paperback comes the "School Library Journal" Best Book of the Year about a medieval orphan's life as an assistant to Red Peg the Bonesetter.

To me this book was very boring it had some god parts but not many. It was a well thought out story line but it just went way to slow. I was at the point to where I was just reading this because I had to. Sorry Karen Cushman but this book *sigh* was just bad, I wouldnt recomend it.

I did not enjoy this book. It was a slow read. I didn't love the charioteers. I didn't really learn much. It was hard to keep reading. I read this as a book group book. I would say if you wanted to do this as a book group book it brings up OK discussion. This is a story about a girl named Matilda who goes to stay at a bone setters while her priest is away. She meets many people and does many treatments. She finds a different side of herself. She complains a lot.
