I ve loved reading Tidewater and yes Libbie Hawker if you ever read this review It would be great to see you re visit this world with the book suggestion you mentioned in your author s note I was wary to begin with purely because I ve always greatly enjoyed the two adaptations of the Pocahontas story that I know so well Disney version and The New World film It s always a bit scary meeting a re imagined version of a character when you feel like you already know them so well I think Thankfully I had no reason to be worried Tidewater s Pocahontas became as dear to me as I d hoped she would As I read through this book I couldn t help comparing it to Sacajawea by Anna Lee Waldo which I read half of earlier last year and had to eventually give up on In Tidewater I found characters with heart something that I feel Sacajawea completely lacked Both stories follow a young Native American girl dealing with difficult life altering events but I cared so much for Pocahontas and that can only be down to the writing It was also nice to read about the events from a point of view other than our well known characters I had never heard of Pocahontas uncle Opechancanough so it was refreshing to get some new insights Despite initially being worried that a third narrator would put me off I really enjoyed his parts of the book I would highly recommend Tidewater to any lover of Pocahontas and early American history or someone simply looking for a beautifully written story about a girl becoming a woman and learning lessons about life love and loyalty during challenging and turbulent times From Cyber Nationalism to Fandom Nationalism people He knows too that they would rather see the English starve than yield their homeland to invaders In the midst of this conflict Pocahontas the daughter of the great chief forges an unlikely friend.
