Ten-year-old Annie's father is a patriot in the American Revolution and she so desperately wants to help him in the cause for liberty. But disasters occur, forcing Annie to focus on home rather than trying to solve the problems of the colony. But when she hears her father's famous words, "Give me liberty or give me death!", she gets a great idea that will protect her father from the Tories.
With war on the horizon, Patrick Henry must often be away from his plantation and family. But his ten-year-old daughter Annie is determined to help the cause for freedom in any way she can.

"As she grows from a young girl to a teenager, Annie Henry's character remains genuine in the six-year span captured so beautifully by Susan Olasky in her American Revolution series. Annie frequently queries her illustrious father, Patrick Henry, about the issues of the day. What she learns gives her the impulse to explore and sets the stage for exciting adventures. At times her faith is tested, but in the process she learns to trust in God anew."
