Purchased for a 9 year old girl. She loved it . . . couldn't put it down! Great book, highly recommended!!

This is a story of a young orphan girl in the NC mountains during the 1960's who needs a family. Although Marilyn McDowell has shown the setting well, I was disappointed in how she chose to tell what could have been an emotionally gripping story. Repeated long flashbacks detract from the story, I would have preferred a more direct timeline. There were too many "coincidences" such as characters showing up in just the right spot and even new characters at the end of the book which make everything turn out favorably for Carolina. Character changes which seem to come out of the blue (why does Mr. Ray suddenly decide it is OK to adopt her when previously he distrusted her?)and dreams of angels which blend in with reality makes this a book that is heavy on historical details, but light on plotting. That said, girls in upper elementary school may enjoy the book and learn some North Carolina history.

This charming, engaging novel seems destined to become a multi-generational classic, like a cross between "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and "Pippy Longstocking." I did not want the book to end. . . and look forward to the next work by this gifted author. The story is at once meditative and riveting, with a dramatic plot that leaves room to savor a summer pace of an earlier time, when people of all ages found satisfaction in the work of their hands and the abundance of the natural world. Especially moving to me is the way that the narrative invites the reader into the homes and hearts of characters of different cultures, races and social classes, creating trust and a spirit of inter-dependence before divulging identifying characteristics that could evoke prejudice or fear. The novel deals with difficult issues of loss, fear and meaninglessness and has left me feeling more hopeful and courageous. The protagonist is richly drawn, with a complex inner life. While her day to day struggles are familiar, her vitality and courage are extraordinary and invite the reader to grow in faith and courage. This book feels like a treasure, with many insights that can sustain young girls moving toward the challenges of adolescence in an increasingly complex society.

I am an adult and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were richly developed and the book made me feel Carolina's emotions. I thought it was a very nice mix of plot and description, action and reflection. Perhaps it was a little too coincidental that Carolina ran into people she knew while miles from "home," but otherwise it was well-written. I look forward to more from McDowell and will pass this on to my 13-year-old daughter. This type of book is so much better than all of the fantasy books that are out these days. It is hard to find good literature for kids, and I'd say this one is a good find.

I think if you live in the mountains, you'd enjoy all the scenery descriptions and nature in this book. However, we don't, and the paragraphs and paragraphs of description slowed me down. But I must say that the author is extremely gifted in painting a real picture of that area!

The story itself is OK, although there are areas of discussion which put me off. I read the book for our (small) school library, but I won't be buying it. Maybe I am too spoiled by the fast-reading books of today!

Here is what my 9 year old daughter has to say............

I enjoyed this book very much because it was not girly. The author did not over describe stuff like in some books. I could sit there for hours reading this book and I highly recommend it. I think any age could enjoy this book and it was easy to read (it did not have fancy language). Oh and I love reading historical fiction books, so if you do, you will want to read this book!

After reading Carolina Harmony I was taken back to the days where I was a child in North Carolina. Marylin Taylor McDowell has created a beautiful story. I couldn't put it down. I look forward to the next book from Marylin Taylor Mcdowell.
