In this excellent Civil War sequel to the Christy Award-winning William Henry Is a Fine Name, Robert Glover is now 17 years old. Although he promised his father not to join the Union Army until he became of age, circumstances force Robert to head for the war. He must also cope with his mother's growing mental illness and rely on his own faith to carry him through his trials. Gohlke's attention to authentic period detail and well-drawn, engrossing characterizations distinguish this outstanding historical novel, and the first-person narrative will draw readers into Robert's gripping life and adventures. Equally appropriate for adults and teens, this is highly recommended for all collections. Gohlke formerly worked as a school librarian.
