I first read Constance last year when my 6th grade teacher recommended it. I adored it- the weekend I read it, Constance was my constant companion! I just finished reading it again and it was even better the second time through! I really feel like I bonded with Constance, and now I am doing as much research as I can on her. She was a real person, and as it says in the book, all the characters but one really existed. Through her diary, Constance tells of her journey across the Atlantic from London to Massachusetts, and gives wonderful details about the building and founding of Plymouth Colony. Through Constance I felt the pain of "the sickness" that claimed many lives during their first winter, became tangled in her complex love triangle, and felt outraged at the two men who tried to destroy Plymouth's peace. Constance was detailed, well written, interesting, exciting, and romantic. I would recommend this book to anyone, but I almost don't want to share it at all,... Read more
This was one of my favoritest books as a preteen. I read it over and over again, and even got my mother to buy a copy for a present for one of my second-cousins. There were so many wonderful historical fiction books for young people when I was still reading preteen and teen lit, before graduating to adult novels at about 14. I knew it was kind of an older book, but it didn't matter to me.

Lately I've been revisiting some of my favorite books from my younger years, and this was one of them. I was rather disappointed that it wasn't as awesome as I remembered it, and even more disappointed to realize that a fair amount of historical liberties had been taken, probably to try to make the story more appealing to young people. I still love the idea of a book in journal form, from the POV of one of the younger Pilgrims, but Constance's story should've been interesting enough without trying to turn her into some silly 20th century flirt. Her coquettish behavior is also a... Read more
Ok, the first time I read this book was for a 7th grade reading assignment-and that was well over 20 years ago, but this book has stayed in my heart ever since. Its a very well written story about a young girl who came over from England on the Mayflower and lived through the struggles that the Pilgrims went through in their first years of Plimouth Plantation. This is for the most part, a true story, written by Patricia Clapp, who's husband is an actual descendant of Constance. The story has adventure, romance and I felt the pain that these people went through during one of the most important times of our history. This book opened in me an interest in life in Plimouth. I was lucky enough to live in New England and visited the Plantation often. I highly recommend this book to young teens, as well as older. Somewhere I still have my copy (that I bought back when I was in 7th grade), and its a book that I would read again.
