Product Description

While her mother and father are away in the mission field, Kate Rau lives with her cousins, Johanna and Jacob Werner, and their three sons.

Life is peaceful in the Moravian town of Bethlehem until the War of Independence breaks out. Then Congress orders Bethlehem to house prisoners of war. And the General Hospital of the Continental Army is set up there. When the British occupy the capital city of Philadelphia, 700 supply wagons arrive in Bethlehem.

Although the Moravians do not believe in war, they want to help their country in peaceful ways. They cheerfully give up their buildings to house wounded soldiers and give food and clothing to the hungry army.

It is the beginning of exciting times for Kate and her young cousin, Andrew. With their Indian friend, Brother Aaron, they help and escaped Hessian drummer boy avoid capture by the American guards. And the young Marquis de Lafayette, a French nobleman who bought a ship and sailed to the colonies to help in the fight for freedom, comes to Bethlehem to recuperate from his wounds. This book is Ruth Nulton Moore's story of intrigue, heroism, and self-sacrifice from 1777-1778, two of the most critical years of the Revolutionary War. A sequel to The Christmas Surprise. Recommended for ages 9 to 13.
