Twelve-year-old Lydia Lankford lives in a Boston that's occupied by more than four thousand British soldiers. Like many in eighteenth-century America, she wants to live free of English interference--and she taunts the soldiers whenever she can. Lydia's brother, Stephen, worries that she may go too far. When a mob of colonists surrounds a small squad of British soldiers, shots ring out--and five Americans die. The shootings inflame Lydia's patriotic fervor but bring her into conflict with some of the more conservative members of her family. Will her impetuous behavior separate her from the ones she loves--or even put them in danger? What would God want her to do? Let the Sisters in Time series take you back to 1770--where you may find that Lydia Lankford isn't that much different than you! Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
