The Bride's Farewell by Meg Rosoff(56)
Pell is a young girl living in England a couple of centuries ago. She is supposed to marry a neighbor boy whom she dislikes so she takes off along with her horse and her mute brother, intending to escape from the fate of an unhappy marriage. This book details her adventures as she goes from village to village, looking for work and trying to live her life. This book reminded me a little of "Pillars of the Earth" except that it was set at a later time. It was enjoyable but not compelling.
