Diana Sunfire No 29

H Creole aristocrat But then her family sends her to St Louis where Diana meets John a brave Kentucky frontiersman David wants Diana to ma Diana by Mary Francis Shura was book #29 in the Sunfire Romance series a historical romance line aimed at teens that was published by Scholastic in the 1980s I enjoyed the novel than I thought I would It's very much like a regular category historical romance with the exception that it involves teenagers as the main characters instead of adults Conseuently it is a very clean romance limited to the occasional hand holding or innocent kiss Our heroine Diana the titles of all the Sunfire books are named after the heroine lives between New Orleans and St Louis from 1803 when she is 14 to 1806 age 17 Her heart belongs to two boys her society friend David and a frontiersman named John who is leaving on the Lewis Clark expedition The novel concerns the choice that she has to make between them I was surprised but satisfied with the outcome Here is a nicely written paragraph from page 87 to give you an idea of the uality of the writing Two days seldom passed without John coming whistling through the woods to her The tune was always the same She always meant to ask him what song it was but forgot to Since she didn't know what else to call it she thought of that certain lilt as 'John's song' and felt her heart skip when it came into her mind Once in a while in the privacy of her own room she hummed the notes to herself and smiled When I was in school learning about history I hated how the textbooks took all the excitement out of the subject with pages showing graphs and maps to impart their information Part of the word history is story and telling the story is what makes it come alive Presumably this was the purpose of the Sunfire line to inform young readers about American history in a way that would interest them and perhaps ignite their interest in history generally This novel succeeds in that aim since near the end I found myself going to Wikipedia to learn about the Lewis and Clark expedition based on its presence in the book I hasten to add that the educational aspect was no intrusive than in any other historical romance novel that I've read so readers fear not getting an unwanted school lesson here Apart from a duel scene later in the book there's not much action or suspense in the story therefore some readers may find it rather unexciting However I found the book to be well written and enjoyable despite the leisurely pace I rate Diana 3 out of 5 stars

Rry him but will saying yes to David mean saying no to true love?Number 29 in the currently out of print Sunfire series by Scholastic book Oh I hated the ending of this book It's absolutely absurd and ridiculous to think that her parents would let her go off into the wilderness with a mountain man I didn't think she could marry David and I did start to see that he seemed to care for Vi as well so that wasn't such a surprise for me A secret part of me hoped that she would not choose either of them but a life for herself So BAD Back to the library book sale for this book

Diana lives in New Orleans during the Louisiana Purchase in the early 19th centuryAt a New Orleans gala Diana meets David a handsome Frenc This suffers from a lot of the traditional Sunfire problems people with current values transplanted into the past being the biggest one guys who treat women poorly being the other one but doesn't have any redeeming values behind it other than maybe the opportunity to learn a little bit about St Louis history The major problems here are the pacing of the book so weird and the way that the subplot about Diana's best friend is shoehorned in at the last minute to wrap things up neatly Check out my full review including details on the swanky cover at Young Adult Historical Vault
