This is a Summer of awakening for Grace as her family legacy is about to be revealed. Set in 1901 with an original plot. Descriptive and enchanting, I was easily brought into Grace's magical world. The characters are well developed and very likable. Interwoven with some true (historical) events and people, I was hooked from the first page until the end. Overall I found Evergreen very entertaining and feel that (Y/A and Adult) Fantasy lovers will enjoy it as well.

    I'll admit that my attention was caught right away, but then there was a third of the book that established it's position as a YA novel with 17-year-olds and their teenage drama. For me, this meant I couldn't give this book a 5 because it took so long to get past the drama and to the meat of the story. This portion took place in Newport, RI. There was even a luncheon at Rosecliff which is my favorite mansion.

This part of the book is when things really change. Grace starts to truly understand what being a dryad means. In New York, we encounter mystery and suspense and my hope for a second book. :) P.S. I loved the historical aspect of the book. It sent me to the internet to see if I could find out more about Alice. I especially love a book that can teach me something. :)

    This story combinations fantasy and history while seen through the eyes of a young adult Dryad girl. It is not quite what one expects with a friendship between Grace Boisvert and Alice Roosevelt. The dynamic of their friendship is similar to many best friends, yet with a magical thread running like a river's current, it takes them on a tumultuous journey full of adventures and challenges. At times Alice dominates the story leaving Grace as the side kick and the fantasy elements take a back seat This story combinations fantasy and history while seen through the eyes of a young adult Dryad girl. It is not quite what one expects with a friendship between Grace Boisvert and Alice Roosevelt. The dynamic of their friendship is similar to many best friends, yet with a magical thread running like a river's current, it takes them on a tumultuous journey full of adventures and challenges. At times Alice dominates the story leaving Grace as the side kick and the fantasy elements take a back seat until late in the book. When they do become the focus however, the pace is ignited. The historical setting and characters do enhance and the love triangle between Kit, Alice and Grace delivers a pretty fun read overall. I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
