"Just Doll" By Janice Daugharty was a well written historical fiction with a good plot along with a very strong heroine.  The setting was from Georgia in the late 1800's.  Doll Baxter is a seventeen year old who lives with her mother and sister and are having a hard time a just struggling to make a living.  Daniel Staten who is a wealthy neighbor has proposed to Doll and she will refuse.  When he offer to pay her family's mortgage and back taxes along with supporting her mother and sister...Doll gives this some thought and know she can't refuse.  She come up with a list of conditions and marries...Now, I will stop here and say you must pick up "Just Doll" and get the reminder of this lovely story as Doll falls in love with Daniel only to find out ....well you can get it from the good read.  This author did a good job at "demonstrating the hardships faced by southern people after the Civil War" and will touch of such issues of 'racial issues, extreme poverty, and the plight of women.' I found this a very interesting read and I would recommend this as a good read.
