I picked up this book after pulling about twenty books with the setting as the American Revolutionary War. A couple students took a book to read; I read Joan Elizabeth Goodman's Hope's Crossing.
Hope is kidnapped by a man who fights opposite of Hope's father in the war. She escapes her kidnapper with an elderly lady from the kidnapper's home. They encounter lots of twists in this novel--emotional ups and downs. It shows how the war effects EVERYONE, not just soldiers. More geared toward the female population. Great historical fiction read!
