Book Review #1 The Revenant


The Revenant by Sonia Gensler is the first book I finished from the library.  Yes, I really did finish it in less than 24 hours.  It was a pretty fast read but still powerful enough to draw you into its world.  This book is Young Adult historical fiction with a bit of paranormal activity thrown in.

The story takes place in 1896/7 Indian Territory (now present-day Oklahoma).  The main character, Willie, has lied about her identity to teach at the Female Seminary School.  Expecting little more than rough, backwoods-y Indians, Willie is very surprised at the sophistication found at every turn in the town.  Living in the room of a murdered student causes Willie to question her belief in spirits and form a rocky friendship with a fellow teacher who is also a budding medium.  Throw in a mysteriously handsome young man from the Male Seminary School and you have the perfect ingredients for romance, intrigue, and adventure.

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed The Revenant and would read it again.    Any book with a main character constantly relying on Shakespeare to get them through tough times is a must read for me.

I’ll bring more book reviews as I read them.  I plan to number each one to see how many books I can read in a year.
