    Heart-felt, Empowering and Earnest

    Emily Heebner's "Seneca Lake" is a well-written, simple and earnest historical fiction book. Set in 1944 rural Finger Lakes, this book unfolds through the narrative of Meg, a high school senior . One would assume that the olden days were simpler times but when human emotions are involved, it is not so simple. Her character growth is remarkable as she reflects on her own family dynamic, her feelings for Arthur, a Seneca Indian farm worker and observes how society at the time treated him. This makes her question the element of prejudice and judgement that plagued society. I really appreciate Meg having such strong aspirations of pursuing her education at Cornell University and the book slowly evolves to reach the point of her decision whether to leave the familiar surrounding of Valois or venture into the unknown. It is a gratifying read with a strong message of believing in yourself and sticking to your own convictions even if it means going against the flow. I found the ending very symbolic though I did not see it coming. A 4.5 star educational and heart-felt read. A thank you to VoraciousReadersOnly for giving me a free review copy via the author.
