Read full description of the books:
Matilda's dropped off in "Blood and Bone" Alley by this priest that has raised her since childhood. She's a snobby little bitch who thinks she knows everything. The bonesetter Red Peg and the rest of the health workers in the alley teach Matilda right.
I'm really torn as to whether this was better than "Catherine Called Birdy" or not. It's so different, it's incomparable. I loved both books so so so so so so much.
In "Matilda Bone," Karen Cushman tells a feminist story set in medieval times. She shows how lower class women influence their society more than higher class women, and in turn, have more power. Meanwhile she teaches girls contemporary lessons about being female through a historical context. She trickles in historical details that are fascinating and informative, but without weighing the story down. It's impossible to predict the turns of scene, what will happen next, or how the story will end. Her characters are funny and endearing. Matilda is a bitch, but not so much that she deters you from reading the story.
