Not worth the time or money

This series was apparently written for a pre-teen audience. The story doesn't advance, the writing is simplistic and repetitive. The author overused phrases throughout such as "a long moment" and dwells on dreams. She attaches twenty first century sensibilities, ideals and values to nineteenth century characters. Overall, the material poor, as was the finished product.

Worse than the material was the narration. Teenage Carrie was given the voice of an old woman. All the male characters sounded alike.

I would NOT recommend this book or series under any circumstances.

Each time a character is in peril, it's so obvious that all will turn out ok, without farther hardship. For stories sake, I think that each character doesn't need to be rescued so quick without further harm. no one has luck this good in real life. I do like the spiritual tones in the series.
