Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With Hope's father away fighting the British and her brother Ethan gone to find him and care for him, Hope, her mother, and her baby sister must take care of themselves. Forced to board a group of filthy, often drunk British soldiers, Hope and her mother look forward to the time when their family can be together again, though reports of the difficulties facing the colonial army at Valley Forge make them fear for Hope's father's safety. Hope is saddened by the separation between her and her best friend Polly, whose family is loyal to England. Mixing historical events with the details of Hope's daily life, this third installment of the "Hope's Revolutionary War Diary" is a simple portrait of a young girl in Philadelphia during the American Revolution that will please fans of the "My America" series. An endnote provides a more detailed look at the progress of the war in early 1778. 2004, Scholastic, Ages 7 to 10.
