A Buss from Lafayette, by Dorothea Jensen, is a delightful historical fiction for younger women. And if you didn’t already know, the word “buss” means kiss. Being a grandmother, I must say that I enjoyed every word of it. It is well-written, entertaining and a wonderful peek into the life of a girl who had just turned fourteen in 1825. The book gives the reader a small window into the history of the American Revolution, when General Lafayette, a man who played a critical role in the victory, is passing through her town and is being honored. The main character experiences many emotional trials and grows wiser and stronger through it all. This is a very enjoyable read. I gave it five stars.
