Yes, it's rather melodramatic. But it *is* a good read & holds the reader's interest throughout.
The main flaw it is that the storyline hinges a fair bit on the reader's prior knowledge of Canadian history & their sense of what is happening in the time & at the place of the story.
There is a useful afterword but to really reach the target audience (young people 10 years old plus, I'm guessing), there should be a bit more "hard" info here & there to help with context.
To give the author her dues I realize that this is hard to do without "preaching" or blatantly "educating".
As a story it is interesting & may well lead the reader to try to find out more of the period & the historical events referred to.
Nicely done & quite a decent specimen in the historical fiction genre, though not a 5 or even a 4-star book. Barbara Greenwood is a talented writer & her stories are always enjoyable. Some of her work *is* 5-star excellent, but even her lower-key stuff is worth reading.

A very good book. That will keep you interested. But at times it can be a bit melodramatic.
