CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, AND DEVELOPMENT:
Primarily a historical fiction novel, Maggie Elizabeth Harrington, has a pungent story of loneliness, growing up, questioning the status quo, environmental and moral issues. D. J. Dwykert grabs the reader with historical facts and environmental insights. As many of the same prejudices about wolves/animals exist today, Dwykert’s plotting highlights the plight of the wolves and the attitudes of then and now. Consequently, Maggie would be described as an animal rights activist today.
Maggie also faces the prejudice of looking above her station for love in a time period filled with class distinction. As well as, questioning the teachings or lack of teachings of the church; Maggie’s full of questions. Dwykert filled Maggie Elizabeth Harrington with well-rounded characters, and pacing which holds the readers attention.
