Book descriptionEdit

"Thursday, the 18th of January
We are waiting for Papa, but we know not if he is hurt or captured or... Oh, to think he may have been killed! We speak not of our fear, for we begin to cry. He went to sea the day after Christmas. I cannot write on this page why, because 'tis a secret. We are at war with England, and King George is now our enemy. That is all I may say.
⸻⸻⸻⸻⸻
As tensions rise between the Tories and Patriots in 1776, Hope's life becomes more and more confusing. She wonders if she will ever see Papa again. Her brother Ethan has proclaimed that he is a Tory and has left home. Will Hope's family ever be reunited? Or will the Revolutionary War keep them apart forever?
