About this item

Liberty is a seductive principle for young Revolutionary Americans.

Inspired by the 21 graves of soldiers who died at the Continental Army’s encampment along the Delaware River, author Sam A. Forman pays tribute to these anonymous young heroes by capturing the essence of their experiences during the Revolutionary War. The formative trials of America are mirrored in the personal choices of the three main characters. Outspoken Katherine supports the patriot cause with conviction, intelligence, and poise, inspiring the respect of many and the affections of two college students—Ezra and Joshua. While fighting, disease, and unrest surround them, these young people suffer the additional pains of heartache and the longing of true love. Combining historical facts with modern sensibilities, Forman creates an engaging tale of adventure and romance.

At the site of Washington's crossing of the Delaware River there are twenty-one graves of Continental soldiers who died at the encampment. In this young-adult novel, Ezra, a Harvard student, joins the Revolutionary War. Readers will take a front seat to history as the battles of Lexington and Concord, Bunker Hill, Quebec, and Trenton unfold on these pages.
