Read in June, 2010

** spoiler alert ** In the flurry of excitement and terror of the start of the Revolutionary War, Sarah Devotion promises to marry her neighbor and childhood friend Tom, but the intelligence, sensitivity, and good humor of the captured British soldier who is recovering in her home make her question her decision. Against the backdrop of Revolutionary Concord, Massachusetts, Cavanna has written a competent historical novel that is considerably more substantive than most of her teenage romance novels.
This oldie is worth finding.
