When Elizabeth goes to stay with her aunt and learn about her mother's side of the family, she finds herself drawn to a portrait of her ancestress Zee (short for Eliza), who lived during the American Revolution. Alternating chapters tell the story of Elizabeth's quest to learn about Zee and about Zee's adventures during the Revolution, where she travels to join her father and brother and observes a bloody battle. As the title indicates, the power of stories is an important part of this tale. Zee's romantic interest in a neighbor and the violence make this not suitable for a religious audience.
