by Katherine Rundell
I originally picked this book up because of the gorgeous cover but quickly fell in love with the story inside.
Wilhelmina Silver lives on a ranch in Africa with her father and runs wild with the local boys. She is fierce and strong and brave and has complete control over her surroundings. Then her life shifts and she is sent to boarding school in England where she doesn’t understand any of the rules and life seems unimaginable.
I really loved this book and read it all in one sitting; it was easy to read and beautifully written and captured everything perfectly, from Wilhelmina’s emotions to the drastically different settings of the ranch and England.
This book was lovely and highly recommended.
