The Limberlost Series has two books and they are both amazing! They are written by Gene Stratton Porter, an incredible writer from the 19 hundreds. If you are hesitant to read a novel that is that old, don't be! After the first few chapters is was easy to read while still being a well written book. Freckles and A Girl of the Limberlost are not closey related so you do not have to read one to understand the other. These two books are some of my favorites that I believe everyone should read at least once in their life. Both stories are coming of ages novels, one about a boy and the other about ..read more
