    Linda Holeman ñ 9 Free read Linda Holeman { Pdf } The Linnet Bird: A Novel One of the 'best of the best' books I've read and I have read some outstanding historical fiction in the past few months. The story of Linnet was compelling from the first chapter.

It shows that Linny Gow will do whatever is necessary to survive. She has some horrible things done to here early in life and she has to fight hard to over come them.

    What I liked most about the book is that Linny doesn't come out unscathed. She comes away from the bad times changed. She's not a Pollyanna character that one often reads about (that usually bores me to tears).
