Country Goose (countrygoose) | 10 comments I read this book in the 7th grade in Accelerated Reading (17 years ago), and most of what I remember is vague. It was a good book, and I have been searching for a long time to find it again. I don't remember the characters' names, the book's title, or the author, so please bear with me. In hindsight, I would say it is more appropriate for high school students or adults.

It's set, I believe, around the Revolutionary War. The girl is in her teens, I believe just turned marriageble. The man she is married off to is older, I think in his thirties. They work hard on their frontier, and he leaves to fight in the war, leaving her alone to take care of the farm herself.

It revolves solely in her perspective, though I think it was written in third person.

It was very thick, and I remember the cover was a red hardback.
