Girls are girls wherever they live—and the Sisters in Time series shows that girls are girls whenever they lived, too! This new collection brings together four historical fiction books for 8–12-year-old girls: Elise the Actress: Climax of the Civil War (covering the year 1865), Janie’s Freedom: African-Americans in the Aftermath of the Civil War (1867), Rachel and the Riot: The Labor Movement Divides a Family (1889), and Emily Makes a Difference: A Time of Progress and Problems (1893). American Rebirth will transport you back to America’s recovery of the late nineteenth century, teaching important lessons of history and Christian faith. Featuring bonus educational materials such as vocabulary words, time lines, and brief biographies of key historical figures, American Rebirth is ideal for anytime reading and an excellent resource for home schooling.
JoAnn lives on the Minnesota prairie which is a setting for many of her stories. Once a full-time CPA, JoAnn now spends most of her time researching and writing. JoAnn has published historical nonfiction books for children and several novels with Barbour Publishing in the Heartsong Presents line as well as the American Adventure and Sisters in Time series for children. Several of her novellas are included in CBA best-selling anthologies by Barbour Publishing. JoAnn’s love of history developed when she worked at an historical restoration in North Carolina for five years. She enjoys researching and weaving her fictional characters’ lives into historical backgrounds and events. JoAnn believes that readers can receive a message of salvation and encouragement from well-crafted fiction. She captivates and addresses the deeper meaning between life and faith.
Luv2ReadAge: 45-54Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful Historical FictionAugust 12, 2013Luv2ReadAge: 45-54Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My daughter loves all of the "Sisters in Time" series. For a wonderful price, she gets 4 books in one! I love how she gains a "living" sense of American history from different perspectives throughout different time periods. She tells me that all the stories in this particular series keeps her attention - which is a definite plus in our household.
I recommend American Rebirth, as well as all the others in the Sisters in Time series.
