2012 book 129

J. Anderson Coats' The Wicked and the Just
It's the year 1293, and an English young girl and her father move to Wales (b/c the government is encouraging English people to move to Wales to help settle and/or oppress the area). The story is told mostly from her POV, with occasional tidbits from her young Welsh servant. Things are primarily interesting for the historical perspective--this isn't really a well-known piece of history, at least not in America. The characters and story are fine, though, and the end is pretty well-done. B/B+.
