    A charming and detailed account of small-town life in upstate New York before electronic gadgets took over. When people found amusement in parlor games, church socials, sleigh rides, and visits to neighbors. Even spelling bees! Steeped in religion, this book is as wholesome as the novels of Louisa May Alcott, but is not fiction. It is about real people, including mentions of some prominent real people: Susan B. Anthony, P. T. Barnum and Tom Thumb, Cyrus Field, Horace Greeley, Wendell Phillips, H [...]

    The author began this diary as a ten-year-old girl in the 1850's, and I enjoyed the window into her life as she journaled the daily events of her life--from her little sister's shenanigans to her grandparent's strong faith. Caroline chronicles the subjects she studies in school along with the games she plays with her school mates--making this a great resource for living historians. The author continued her diary through the Civil War, and readers can see a change in the tone of Caroline's entrie [...]

    Most of the book takes place well before the civil war begins, and it is fascinating to see what the daily life of a young girl was like. It begins when she's 10, and ends when she turns 30. The descriptions of what living through the four year war was like pull at your heart, and the people she meets throughout her life are often names you recognize from the history books. Well worth the read.

    The description is a bit vague - it appears to be referring to a collection of books. However this specific book is a diary kept by a girl between the ages of 10 to 30. While I'm sure that those who are more seriously interested in history or religion than I would enjoy this for the details, I found the amount of history minimal and the amount of religion - well, when it's such a controlling, creepy variety of religion, I find it somewhat difficult to continue reading. In the end I did manage to [...]

    Excellent introduction to how a child and teen lived in the mid-1800s. I was looking for details on activities, toys, daily life and these are there. The diary is written by the daughter of a minister. Her mother is dead, so she lives with her beloved grandparents. The grandfather is a banker, so her life is fairly privileged.
