It's no secret that I really like historical stories, so I was excited to read this one.

First impressions: I was a bit surprised by the age of the protagonist after staring at the pretty cover. Because of the cover, I went in thinking this was YA, but it turned out to be an age category that would be hard to define in our modern minds. Because of the era, kids grew up much faster and became "adults" at an earlier younger. Thus, I suppose a 13 (almost 14) yr old protagonist would be comparable t

I enjoy books that pull me into a character's life and predicament from the opening chapter. By the time I turned the page into Chapter 2, I wanted to know how almost-14-year-old Perdy Rogers would be involved in the upcoming American Revolution and if she would help her friend elope. That's a lot for author Gayle Krause, to accomplish in the first six pages of her upper middle grade book, TWICE BETRAYED.

On the eve of the Revolution, Perdy is an apprentice to Betsy Ross, the alleged maker of the

Gayle C. Krause delivers another strong female heroine in her second novel, Twice Betrayed. From the moment Perdy (Prudence) Rogers begins her tale, we are swept away to our nation's founding. But this isn’t the dry, dull history that may have left you yawning in school. Perdy is a flesh and blood thirteen year old girl, coming of age in a turbulent time. Young readers will quickly identify with her longing for independence. Raised by a loving, but strict Quaker grandmother, Perdy feels trapped. ...more

Gayle Krause does it again in Twice Betrayed. The hint of espionage, gold coins sewn in skirt hems, and independence crackling in the air. Three girls leave but only two return. You need to read this book.

Prudence Rogers is apprentice in Betsy Ross' upholstery shop. This young teen longs to have the freedom to spend time with her friends. When the opportunity arises to lend them a helping hand, she takes it, little realizing the consequences that will come her way.

I found the historical details of life in Colonial Pennsylvania to be the most interesting part of the book. Prudence, or Perdy as she is commonly known, was not especially memorable in any way. I felt like shouting at her, though, to s
