The Coffin Quilt: The Feud Between the Hatfields and the McCoys

The Coffin Quilt: The Feud Between the Hatfields and the McCoys - Ann Rinaldi Edit on 1/17/14- After rereading this book, I have changed my rating and edited my review to reflect my current rating.

So I reread The Coffin Quilt because I needed a book about the Civil War for English. I enjoyed it more because I understood more about the setting. I did some research on the Hatfield-McCoy feud and it was fascinating. I'm definitely going to read more books on the subject.

But I didn't enjoy it enough to give it more than two stars. Mainly because Fanny, our protagonist, didn't have much of a personality. I think the book would have been more interesting if it had been told from Roseanna's perspective.

I realize I was being unfair the first time I read The Coffin Quilt. So two stars this time. No more, no less.
