Catherine, Called Birdy

I have always had a soft spot for this book. My friend recommended it to me some years ago and I just recently reread it. It is a nice book and an easy read. I of coarse could not pass it up on account of it being placed in the medieval time period. And also the fact that it is in Journal format.


This story takes place in a manner of a not so wealthy knight. His daughter, Catherine is a fun loving, mischievous, and witty girl of 14, who absolutely despises embroidery and anything to do with becoming a fair, well mannered young woman. Her father is not exactly a knight in shining armor. She through out the story gets read of suitor after suitor that her horrible father is trying to sell her to. She was doing so well until a man, nick named Lord Shaggy Beard, will not be shook of by her attempts. He by far is the worst of the worst. Catherine is determined not to be sold like one of her father's horses.

I personally give this book 4 stars and highly recommend it to all who love quick witted and funny heroins who will let nothing stop them from achieving their goals.
