    1. OVER THE RIVER is historical fiction at its finest. I love stories about family secrets, and Moranville's flawless writing drew me in from the first page. This is a wonderful story for middle school age on up.


    2. An almost heart-wrenching depiction of a 12-year old girl whose mother died five years before and whose father joined the Navy in World War II and didn't come until two years after war ended. But Willa Mae is happy with her grandparents—she's named after her grandfather Will and grandmother Mae—and her Aunt Rose. Then Daddy comes home and thinks Willa Mae belong with him. He's a good man, but he takes Willa Mae away from the only home she knows. It's a wonderfully told story about family los [...]


    3. Willa Mae has lived with her grandparents and Aunt Rose (age 16) for the past several years. Her father is in the Navy, fighting World War II and her mother died from a head injury, slipping on the ice. But now Willa Mae’s father is back, and she learns all kinds of interesting things about her family’s history, and gets to know her other grandparents, too. The real tension in the story comes when Willa Mae’s father decides to take her with him to Oklahoma to find work, and everyone strugg [...]


    4. This story conveys a message of hope and inspiration but deep in mystery. So many question left unanswered for a young girl. This is a fiction book but it based on the era of world war II.

The author always made a point to create "why questions" throughout the whole book in order to keep the reader hooked. In many ways as a reader we want there to be room fo [...]
