What I'm reading: A Coal Miner's Bride


A Coal Miner’s Bride: The Diary of Anetka Kaminska
by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

I don't have a lot of free time to read, but I do pick up a book from time to time. While at the library with my girls I saw this book and it caught my eye. Yes... it is from the junior section of the library, but I just wanted something quick and interesting to read.

This was the perfect short book, written in a diary style. It was quick and I learned a bit about how life might have been for a polish girl sent to America for an arranged marriage. Since it was a book for teens it did lack the juicy details you might expect. But all the same it was a nice little story.
