This set includes William Henry is a Fine Name and I
Have Seen Him in the Watchfires

In William Henry is a Fine Name,
they told Robert his best friend wasn't human. Robert's father assisted
the Underground Railroad. His mother adamantly opposed abolition. His
best friend was a black boy named William Henry. As a nation neared its boiling
point, Robert found himself in his own painful conflict. The one thing he couldn't
do was nothing at all. William Henry is a coming-of-age story about
a 12-year-old boy--and an entire country--that comes face to face with the evils
of society, even within the walls of the church. In the safety of an uplifting
friendship, he discovers the hope of a brighter day. 

In I Have
Seen Him in the Watchfires
, the bonds linking family and the lines separating
enemies have become very blurry for 17-year-old Robert. With his father away fighting
for the Union, Robert must decide to act alone in order to help his ailing mother,
extricate his injured Confederate Uncle, and bring relief to his cousin, Emily.
When he unwittingly gets entangled in a Confederate escape plot, Robert must forge
his anger and shame into a new determination to save his family. And, perhaps, he
must also realize that the saving might not be entirely up to him. Honor and duty
to God and country aren't as clear-cut as he hoped them to be.
