Sarah's Secret: Civil War Deserter at Fredericksburg (American Civil War Adventure) (Paperback)
A story about looking beyond the blue or the gray colors of the uniform and seeing the true person. In 1862, the Civil War battle at Fredericksburg looms too close to home for Sarah, a teenage farm girl who has lost twin brothers in the war. Frightened and angry, Sarah wonders how much closer the fighting will get and how much more her family will lose before the Yankees finally leave Virginia. Then Sarah discovers Matthew, a young Union soldier who reminds her of her own brothers, sleeping in her hayloft. Sarah faces a big dilemma: Should she tell her parents about the enemy deserter or keep this dangerous secret to herself? With a company of Confederate soldiers closing in, there isn't much time if Sarah is going to help Matthew escape.
