Time-travel should be a fun adventure... right? And yet Kristen and Brad find that being stuck in the past is anything but.
The Everhearts are taking part in a battle re-enactment from the American Revolutionary War battle re-enactment when they inexplicably find themselves back in 1777, on the eve of a battle for independence and liberty. They have no way of knowing what's going on; all they can do is try to get through the day. The siblings meet Rebecca, who needs to deliver a message of vital importance to the revered General Washington. They also team up with a tavern-owner's son in order to escort Rebecca back to Philadelphia. In the rush along the way, they deal with a spymaster, colonial deserters, and British soldiers who keep getting in the way.
And they still have to figure out how to get back to their own time....
American history comes alive! Recommended for ages 11 and up.
