There is just something about historicals that bring me to life. I love reading them. Addy is swept back in time when she mess with a time machine. She is then mistaken for a lady and is taken back to the castle. She meets a falconer who has striking eyes that she remembers but just can not place it. In time she falls in love, hides secrets and discovers how this falconer really is...I like this book. Addy life was uncomfortable and painful. She dealt with the constant teasing for her peers as well as the pressure of her mother to be put in her place. Addy was never allowed to have any dreams because her life was made out for her. I loved Addy. Her character was not like the others in the book. She was strong willed and knew that there was more to life than what she had.She yearned for adventure and wanted more. Addy, after being swept into the past, learns so much more about herself. The twist in the book was good. Very good. When she met the falconer, I had no idea who he was. Ms. Whitman did a great job holding me in suspense as her characters played out there parts in revealing the secret. And boy was I happy! I jumped for joy (literally) when I found out.Wildwing is a great historical and one I would never forget. Ms. Whitman did a wonderful job writing two different time lines very well. During the book I felt like I was Addy chasing down secrets and learning new ways. Simply wonderful.
