This book by A E Walnofer had a beautiful balance between the descriptive and emotional elements I was transported into the old English countryside as I journeyed with Madge through the pagesEach character no matter what role they played had a uniue personality and purpose that supported the story The callousness of people as they denigrated Madge due to her birthmark was juxtaposed with the compassion and support she got from Keaton who could easily empathize with her plight Keaton and Brom were unlikely bedfellows for a young girl seeking to change her marked face—yet they each contributed to her confidence and acceptance of herself Madge finds out that she is so much than her face and begins to see herself through the eyes of friendship and loveAfter reading A Girl Called Foote I was eager to read by this author and I was not disappointed Very well written this is one of the best historical fiction books I’ve recently read
