War has started between England and the United States. Young Mary O'Shea is left all alone to tend to the farm and watch over her sister Angelique when her father is called off to fight in the mainland. With courage and quick cleverness they are able to outsmart British soldiers, tolerate 2 harsh winters, and are able to keep the farm in one piece.
When war erupts between England and America in 1812, it brings change and uncertainty—even to Michigan's remote Mackinac Island. For young Mary O'Shea, the hardest change is the departure of her father, who leaves Mackinac to join the American Army. With her sister and brother, Mary must tend the farm, deal with the hardships of British occupation, and hope for the safe return of their father.
Gloria Whelan is the bestselling author of many novels for young readers, including Homeless Bird, winner of the National Book Award, The Locked Garden, Parade of Shadows, and Listening for Lions. She lives in Michigan near Lake St. Clair.
