    I enjoyed this one!

    3-3.5 STARS! I’m glad that I stuck through reading The Indigo Girl. It was very hard for me to get into the first 25-30% because the story moved rather slowly. What kept me going was knowing that this was based on real life letters from a girl named Eliza whose father left her and her family to fight in the war. Once you pass this hump, the story flies as Boyd takes us on a journey of a sixteen-year-old girl with such fierce drive to prove that she can do what any boy or man can do in this time period—be successful in running her family’s plantations while attempting to produce indigo dye—something not done in rural South Carolina before. I enjoyed living Eliza’s life and seeing her independence and strength of character but most of all seeing how smart and passionate she was to protect her family from losing everything they had worked so hard for. I loved her heart and her protectiveness of the people she loves especially in a time when slavery was so predominant, her heart and love for her people emitted from the pages. I would have loved to see more in regards to her forbidden friendship with Ben and even a peek into what life was like after the ending because while I knew going in that this was not a romance story, the little sneak peeks into the potential of what was shown to us really made my heart happy. I would have liked to spend more time with them. With every book, you have your set of antagonists and boy, did I really dislike those… I don’t want to elaborate any more on this because I think it’s so important to see for yourself how the story and the characters unfold. But a couple of them really made my blood boil! Overall, I enjoyed The Indigo Girl a lot. It was a little slow moving at first but I enjoyed the overall message and theme. Most of all that it is different from the sea of books that are so similar. Knowing that this young girl had the gumption to push forward with her beliefs and who in the end is a big part of history made this story even more powerful because who doesn’t love reading about a strong woman who stands up for what she believes in. <3
