Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
Abigail Jane Stewart continues to record the experiences in her diary as she and her family are caught up in the American Revolutionary War. This fictional diary follows her earlier experiences which are recorded in the first diary, The Winter of Red Snow. The reader sees the innocent view of a girl forced to survive in a war after a devastating fire destroys their home. Her mother and siblings follow the father to his Continental Army camps, and face danger from British troops along the way. Abby gains a frontline view of the war during their travels. The results of being caught up in this conflict are vividly described. It is a story filled with romance and adventure. The diary format is age appropriate and gives an excellent view of the American Revolutionary War. The date divisions for the year, 1779, provide an easy transition through the text. The "Historical Note" gives background information about the American Revolution. Black and white sketches and photographs show the era. The "Acknowledgements" section defines the in-depth research undertaken by the author. The diary would be an excellent supplement to the history curriculum as young readers see this period of history come alive. Other books in the "Dear America Series" include The Fences Between Us: The Diary of Piper Davis, A Journey to the New World: The Diary of Remember Patience Whipple; and Voyage on the Great Titanic: The Diary of Margaret Ann Brady. Although Abigail's second diary covers the unique topic of the American Revolution, the content contributes to overall American history showcased in the series. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith

    This is an "interesting" book. It told about the hardships that they had to face during the war. Sad at times, this book is ok.
