I read the older copy(old cover)but this one's cover is prettier :)

It will be a long trying winter.See the winter of Valley Forge through the eyes of Abigail Jane Stewart.

Violence:Amputation,several boys die on thin ice,talking about battles, shooting people, several hangings, soldiers stealing and then some of them being shot if caught.

Other:Small mention of wine.

Time Period:1777-1778.

What I Thought:Very realistic, well done, a little gruesome to some, but I really liked it.It is a really good historical fiction book.This is my second time reading it I believe.

Rating & Age:4 1/2 stars.11 pr 10 up.



  1. I've read this one (and just about all the rest of the Dear America series:) and from what I remember of it (Iread it about two years ago)it was really good and it didn't leave out the rough parts. (like the soldiers not having shoes and there feet bleeding) But, yeah it's an awesome book!

  2. Trinka:I've read most of them too(some of them several times...especially the Coal Miner's Bride.That is my favorite!) and I was rereading this one so I could read the sequel diary.That review will be coming soon!Yes, it was very realistic.That was a tough time.


If you have book news or anything!
I'd love to hear about it =)
