An author's note gives the historical inspiration for this story.
Forbidden by Eve Bunting was good. I recommend other people to read the book. It's is one of my favorite ones. What I like about the book is the Eve Bunting put a lot of details in the book and you can imagine the settings in your head, if it was a peaceful or scary place. What I dislike about that book is that the ending was so good and wished there was more. Hope Eve Bunting makes a second part. It's is fine to leave as the first book. I chose this rating because it was just a good book. The ending got me like 😱😱. My friends have read it and they were like that to. Really good book to read !!
