Whispers of War: The War of 1812 Diary of Susanna Merritt (Dear Canada)

Not one of my favourites, which was a disappointment as I live in the Niagara region and was looking forward to this one. I've read some of Pearson's historicals and she's a fine author, but somehow I failed to connect with this book. The story was very slow until the ending Battle of Queenston Heights. But most of all the book failed to convince me of its time period. With most of the story being day-to-day life for the characters during this time, I completely forgot we were in the Napoleonic era as the voice was much more modern. OK, but should have been better.
