I read this book twice: one in hardback and once on my e-reader. The first time I read it, I wasn't a huge fan of it, but when I re-read it, I loved it. The beginning is so sad, and you really feel bad for Lydia and her brother, but then they get to the shakers, the story begins to get better. I don't know how many times reading this book that second time around brought a smile to my face. Sister Jennie has got to be my favorite dear America character. She is so sweet to Lydia and becomes a mentor to Lydia (even after Lydia insults her on her first day there). I love how Lydia opens up to her new world, and makes friends. I love how close the sisters are, and how Lydia adapts to her new life. Lois Lowry did a great job on this book.

I read and loved the original Dear America series when they came out a decade ago, so when I found out they were publishing new books in the series I was happy to pick up the new books. One of my favorite things is learning about different lives and different periods in American history, this one was about the Shakers. It was fun reading about the religion and what life was like for them. Lydia and her brother end up joining the Shakers after their parents die of the 1918 Spanish flu, she also worries about her brother who wants to go off and fight in the war. Lydia ends up really enjoying the new life she lives and the Shakers. It was a really good book with only two minor problems the first is her worry about her brother going off to join the war. I don't know if it was the same in other books but in mine he's listed of leaving the day before peace is declared. But its never mentioned that the war ended the next day in my book for more then a month. I realize the Shaker society is a part from normal society, but it seemed unlikely it would take that long for them to hear the war was over. Especially since Lydia was worried her brother had ran off to join the war, a second minor details was when it list some of the famous people who died of the Spanish flu. My book names the King of Spain as dying of the Spanish flu, that would be a surprise to him since he died in 1941.

There are many fictionalized accounts of children who were brought up by the Shakers. Most of these, however, contain very few correct depictions of Believers or Shaker life and never get past a retelling of poorly researched myths. LIKE A WILLOW TREE, by contrast, provides an excellent and heart warming glimpse into a Shaker village in 1918. The author has a strong grasp of Shaker customs and is very familiar with the physical landscape at Sabbathday Lake. In addition, she knows many details of the real Shakers who lived there at the time. Their names and occupations are not only factually correct but the reader gets insight into the anxiety they faced as Shakerism was collapsing all around them. Of course the story is about a little girl forced to live with the Shakers under the most tragic circumstances, but the author's care in writing the story helps make it a great read for anyone interested in the social history of the Shakers.

Boring. Reads more like a list of what the Shakers do everyday. It was hard to connect with the main character. I would expect a young girl in her situation to feel more emotional and unhappy, at least for a while.

Really great book with a lot of detailed, Lois Lowry writes amazing books. Also read her book Number the Stars. I ordered this book used and was really impressed with the condition it was in, nearly brand new!

the book teaches some great history while being a really engaging read. very clean, nothing snarky or mean, and yet the relationships are very real to life. a great book for the tween crowd.

Perfect! It was a pleasure doing business with you.
I bought this book for the Alfred Shaker Museum in Alfred Maine for young people to understand how the Shakers took care of children when their families were in crisis.
