Overview

Hannah craves excitement, but all local adventures dried up long ago, when her parents unpacked their wagon on the Michigan frontier. Then war breaks out and her father and brother leave to fight the Confederacy. Hannah is left at home chafing under the boredom of never-ending chores--until unscrupulous speculators set their sights on the unmanned farm. The one place she longs to leave suddenly becomes the one place she'll risk everything to save.

The Divided Decade Collection includes three stand alone stories that view the American Civil War through three different lenses. All are set within Michigan. The Candle Star features the Underground Railroad. Blood of Pioneers illustrates the trials faced on the rural homefront after the menfolk leave for war. And Beneath the Slashings is set within a Northern lumber camp filled with returning soldiers. The books can be read out of order or read alone, depending on the theme that most interests the reader (or most closely relates to a classroom curriculum). All three have been highly acclaimed by teachers and home schoolers. Each has lesson plans and additional resources available.

Meet the Author

Michelle Isenhoff writes adventures for kids of all ages. Sometimes they take place in the past, such as her popular Civil War-era Divided Decade Trilogy and The Color of Freedom. Other times they involve fantastical plots or new worlds, as in The Quill Pen and Song of the Mountain. More recently, Michelle had a blast writing the first book in her humorous, high-action Taylor Davis series.

Michelle will never market profanity or controversy to her young audience. Instead, she relies on fun, solid story-telling. She prefers stories with some depth to them, and especially enjoys beautifully crafted language and a hero who grows and learns and changes. Michelle often receives emails from grown-ups (as old as 79) who encourage her to keep writing for “us kids!”
