Main Conflict

There were many conflicts in this book but the main one was between Cornelia and her Vader ( Vader means “father “ in Dutch). Her mother died from the Plague, her brother is married and lives far away so it is just Cornelia living with her cat and her grumpy father. He father always favored her brother more than her and now that he is gone there is no one to break the tension between them. She likes Carel and wants to see him again but her father refused to let her,this only makes things worse.The most important part of this conflict is when she runs away to be with Carel.


I recommend this book because it tells an emotional and intriguing story of a young girl trying to make the best of her difficult situation. There is a lot of suspense towards the end which makes it even more interesting.
