The first book in the series, Savannah of Williamsburg: Being the Account of a Young, London Squirrel, Virginia 1705 is a gentle and detailed introduction to pre-Revolutionary America and the difficulties and victories that come with progress and time. (It is also a light-hearted, detailed look at some of the Arts, literature, culture and European fashions of the 18thC.) Meet Miss Savannah and her tight circle of humorous friends whom will stick with her through the years and battles to come: some will remain Royalists, some will turn rebellious, all will know great joy and hard sadness as the fractured colonies forge ahead toward eventual solidarity of state.
Book I is a great way to begin the series, or a fantastic read as a prequel if you've already Books II and III. Likened to Emma, Wind in the Willows, Johnny Tremain and Watership Down, this is a series adults and young readers equally love!
Savannah of Williamsburg is a fantastic, fun and adventerous story that eases the reader into the often difficult subject of 18th. Century, pre-Revolutionary War history.
