"Never would I allow my size to define me. Instead I would define it."
I wonderfully written and unique story about Mercy Lavinia "Vinnie" Bump - the women who would one day become Mrs. Tom Thumb. I loved everything about this story: the descriptive setting, the interesting characters, and the extraordinary storyline of a women who would have a life beyond anything that her family dreamt of for her. A novel full of heart, tragedy, and passion. I have loved everything that I have read by Melanie Benjamin this year and this novel was no different.
