The Clearing by Heather Davis is not the worst books I ever read, but it is far from the best. The Clearing is about Amy, a girl who leaves home after being in an abusive relationship,to live with an elderly aunt. Amy soon realized that even though life in the rural country is different, it is also very similiar i.e. cliques.
Amy feels like she doesn't belong anywhere until she meets Henry. Henry is stuck on her aunt's property in the year 1944. Henry and Amy fall inlove, but know that it cannot last. I am sure many teens can relate to Amy and the struggles she goes through. It was not my cup of tea. However, I did like Aunt Mae. She is a hard working old gal, full of common sense. Read it or not, it's up to you.
