Time Period: 1744 Slavery confuses Maggie Baldwin. It's 1744, and the tenderhearted twelve-year-old can't understand why her friend was given a young female slave as a Christmas present-or why her friend mistreats the miserable Caribbean girl. When a major spiritual revival breaks out, Maggie is convinced she must dare to help the slave. Using actual historical events to tell a compelling fictional story, Maggie's Dare explores both the Great Awakening and the early stirrings of the abolition movement, while showing young readers that they, too, can serve God by serving others. Sisters in Time books offer learning and fun, at a great price!

This book from the "Sisters in Time" series takes you back to the Great Awakening (1744-1745). In this fictional story you'll meet Maggie Baldwin, a twelve-year-old. With hoop skirts, tea parties, dancing lessons, and best friends that are rich, Maggie is attempting to have a life that really doesn't fit her own simple family. How does that poor girl, Ann, and the mistreated slave, Melee, fit into the story---and how do they affect Maggie's life? Meanwhile, the Great Awakening is going on, and talk of the Revivalists is on everybody's lips. The "New Light" is spreading, but everyone seems to be in arguments over it. Which side will Maggie finally choose to be on? My personal thoughts: Pretty good book---I am glad that I read it. It was great to study about that time period.
