A World Away is meant for teens, but the story of Nadie, a native American, and Tom, a Plymouth blacksmith's apprentice is so well handled that you feel empathy for both of them. The novel is a "two voice" novel...alternate chapters, (usually,) are narrated by Nadie and Tom. Fortunately Tom is used to having to calm "savage"...i.e skittish order to "shoe" them..he applies this in his courtship of Nadie.
Again like so many books I have read lately, this novel is based on actual happenings, although in this instance the author has used artistic licence to make the story work.
