Présentation de l'éditeur

Book 2 of Shenandoah Sisters. Mayme and Katie, from entirely different worlds, have been thrown together in the chaotic aftermath of the Civil War. Just teenagers, they are left to survive only by their own wits and shared experiences. Gradually, they are learning to appreciate each other's strengths and to shore up each other's weaknesses. Out of their efforts to simply stay alive comes a growing awareness of the Lord's love and care for them, as well as the dim outlines of a plan to keep Rosewood Plantation operating. The book continues the story begun in Angels Watching Over Me, of two very appealing but contrasting characters and their secret mission to provide a sanctuary for others who have been left alone and adrift by a tragic war.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Continuation of life in an adult-less plantation.... 11 juillet 2004
Par Bonnie McKinzie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Two Black girls, two White girls and a baby try to keep the plantation going and keep away any people who might do them harm. Working harder than ever is the new Mistress of the plantation, a mere 15 yr. old girl. She now oversees a very young girl and a somewhat mentally challenged new mother with a small son. Most of the people are either running or hiding from danger.
This second book brings into focus the viciousness of the baby's father and his intent on getting rid of both mother and baby. What follows is dynamic love and perserverance and the ugliness of some men's minds and their wicked meanness is almost too much to absorb.
The girls are maturing quickly and when the bank loan comes due with no money to be had, reposession is a very immediate possibility. This is where the book gets its' title, a real friend materialized and the harmony they show and their hard work pay off.
Today I finished book two and today I purchased book 3 in this series. I feel almost like family now and simply must know the future for these young people. Thank you Michael Phillips for this series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent sequel to Angels Watching Over Me. 7 décembre 2004
Par Rebecca Herman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Mayme Jukes and Katie Clairborne are two fifteen-year-old girls from worlds apart -- Mayme was born into slavery, while Katie was the daughter of a wealthy family that owned a large plantation. But in the final days of the Civil War, they both lost their families to marauders, and now they share an important secret. After Mayme, fleeing the scene of her family's murders, came across Katie, the only survivor at her plantation, Rosewood, the two girls decided to live there on their own and pretend that Katie's mother is still alive. As if that were not difficult enough, now they must protect three other people as well. Emma, a former slave, and her baby, William, are hiding at Rosewood from William's father, the son of Emma's former master. And Aleta, a young girl whose mother died as they fled from her abusive father, is living at Rosewood and is determined to never return home. Mayme and Katie have other worries as well. A loan is due soon at the bank, and if they don't pay, they will never be able to protect their secret.

This was a good sequel to "Angels Watching Over Me" that continues the story of Mayme and Katie, and introduces some new characters as well. I really enjoyed the first book, and this was an excellent sequel. It brings to life the dangers of the post-Civil War South and is a heartwarming story of friendship. I really came to care about the characters. I highly recommend these books to teens who like historical fiction about this time period. I can't wait to read the other two books in this series and find out what happens next.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Taking Care of Business 27 juin 2004
Par The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The second in the Shenandoah Girls series, A DAY TO PICK YOUR OWN COTTON continues the story of Katie and Mayme. In this book the two unlikely friends, one a recently freed slave and the other the daughter of a former wealthy slave owner, continue to attempt to keep the fact that they are alone on Katie's plantation a secret. The two girls struggle to make things look "normal" on the plantation, but along the way they encounter new friends, a new roommate, dangerous visitors and financial difficulties. The story has a little of everything, there are moments that are light-hearted and humorous, others that are sad, and some that are filled with suspense, and the result is an overall enjoyable read.
While A DAY TO PICK YOUR OWN COTTON is book two in a series, the author provides enough background so that it could stand on its own. However, I think I enjoyed the book more having read the first because I had a stronger emotional connection to the main characters. Overall, this is a fast paced story that highlights many aspects of everyday life in the Post-Civil War South. The Christian themes in the book are subtle and unassuming, it was touching to watch Mayme and Katie struggle to understand God and develop a relationship with him. While this series is not specifically geared towards young adults I think they may enjoy it as much as their parents.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling sequel in terrific series 21 septembre 2005
Par Christina Lockstein - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book was the second entry in the Shenendoah Sisters series, and definitely lived up to the first book. As Mayme and Katie try to make their way in a strange new world of the Reconstruction South without adults, they also need to take care of Emma, her son William, and little Aleta. Their love for each other and the Lord resonates through each page. Phillips has a great voice for these girls and the way they struggle through each day. This is a series I'm hooked on.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful series!! 5 février 2013
Par P. Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
I'm on book 4 of the Shenandoah Sisters Series. Although slightly unbelievable, they are all very riveting and insightful. I love the fact that they are historical fictions so we get to learn about history, while enjoying a book. I especially LOVE the way the characters feelings of self-worth and their discovery of who of God is, are brought to light. I've recommended this book series to TONS of people. I'm reading some of it to my young daughter, although some content is more adult and I explain that part instead of reading. For example, Katie noticed the whip scars on Mayme's back and proceed to tell Katie about some of the torture she's seen as a former slave, to Katie. It was a very graphic image that I'll never get out of my mind. I'm glad I didn't read it to her out loud. I did however talk about how they were whipped and treated horribly, worse than you'd treat an animal. Although it was not graphic there was also content about the raping of young slave girls.
