TWO WORLDS. A SPY RING. CHARACTERS AND EVENTS FROM THE PAST COME TO LIFE. A FRIENDSHIP THAT DEFIES TIME..
Mary Grayson Pratt, a typical middle schooler, is bored with sightseeing with her parents in historic Boston. But the journey Mary takes into the past goes well beyond sightseeing. Mary is plunged into the center of the excitement and intrigue of the American Revolution. How did she get there? How will she find her way home? The meaning and impact of true friendship, loss, fear of the unknown, and experiencing the truths of history, are all important challenges Mary must face on her journey. Significant social and family issues relevant to middle schoolers are integral parts of the narrative. Mary's story takes her through a labyrinth of new customs, secrets shared in attics, efforts for the cause of freedom, and explosive events. That story holds the reader while she is learning history through immersion rather than a textbook. How Mary’s story gets resolved carries the reader into a world of historical tumult and human connections that span time. Daughter of Liberty is presented complete in Part One and Part Two.
