"The cast is huge and difficult to keep straight, but the confusion is part of the drama."

Booklist, November 1, 2010

". . . a very well written book that will relate well to many young readers . . . an excellent selection for a basic books list for school libraries."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, January 2011

"This well-written story, told from a young girl’s perspective, takes the reader deep into the fear and uncertainty that surrounded some of the darkest hours of pre-revolutionary American history."

Children's Literature

". . . the books have straightforward, chronological plot lines . . . Providing engaging reading for young readers about complex and, at times, frightening historical events is no small task, and both books do an admirable job of presenting numerous details of daily family and community life while portraying threatening, occasionally horrific, and ultimately life-changing events."

VOYA, April 2011

"The third-person narrative reveals Sarah as a reportorial, somewhat apprehensive but empathetic innocent observer. Factual material is incorporated into the narrative, creating a fast-paced, fascinating read."
