LORI'S REVIEW

Wonderful book and great characters! 
Very well written and I think its great that it's about the author's ancestors! 
I wish I knew who mine were but since Im adopted I have no Idea 
I also enjoy history and learning about those who went before us.
I don't think I'd make a very good pioneer. Im not very fond of change
I think Stella was very brave in doing what she did. 
The only real thing I didn't like the about the book was that it was told in present tense a genere I find hard to understand sometimes 
I recommend this book to you if you enjoy historical fiction and truth mixed in.
I received this book for free. All opinions are my own




About the Author

Heather Chapman
Being the youngest of four sisters (and one very tolerant older brother), Heather grew up on a steady diet of chocolate, Anne of Green Gables, Audrey Hepburn, Jane Austen, and the other staples of female literature and moviedom. These stories inspired Heather to begin writing at an early age. After meeting and marrying her husband Mark, Heather graduated magna cum laude from Brigham Young University and finally settled down in a small farming community in southeastern Idaho with her husband and four children. In her spare time, Heather enjoys time spent with family, volleyball, piano, the outdoors, and almost anything creative.

Author Interview

(Insert your interview here or include the one below.)
1. If you could go to tea with one of the characters in The Forgotten Girl, who would you pick and why?Definitely Stella. I would love to hear her actual story, feel of her strength, and ask her all the questions I wished I could ask her while I was writing this story.
2. In the story, who was the easiest character to write?  Who was the hardest?
I didn’t feel like any character was particularly easy to write. They all came with their own challenges, but I enjoyed creating Bronia’s character the most, perhaps making her the easiest emotionally to write. Stella was the most complex character I’ve ever attempted to create. She was strong and courageous, but she didn’t realize it. She was beautiful and influential, but she never saw that. It was difficult to show her good qualities to the reader while also hiding them from the MC.
3. If you were to travel back in time and visit your favorite time period, where would you go and why?
Probably regency England or ancient Egypt.
4. What top 5 books do you currently have on your TBR pile?1)Turtles all the way down by John Green; 2)Why not me by Mindy Kaling; 3)Under the Greenwood Tree by Thomas Hardy; 4)Far from the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy; and 5)What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
5. What is something unique about you that most of your readers don’t already know?My first job was working as a map folder for the government. Seriously. I took maps the size of ping pong tables and folded them to fit into binder sheet protectors.
