The Secret of Sarah Revere
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 1 ëèñò. 1995 ð. - 338 ñòîð.
The daughter of Paul Revere tells of her father’s secret—and her own: “A lively, exciting picture of Boston going to war…excellent.”—VOYA
Thirteen-year-old Sarah Revere knows her father is a Patriot hero, a champion of the Colonies against the British. But she also knows that Paul Revere guards a secret about the start of the Revolutionary War that he will tell no one—not his new wife, not his best friend, not even his trusted daughter. It seems everyone in her family has secrets. Sarah’s even got one of her own—and it's tearing her apart….
This is a “beautifully crafted” novel of a young girl growing up—and a country’s battle for independence (School Library Journal).
“As usual, Rinaldi has done her homework; the book is solidly researched and extremely well written. Readers will not soon forget these characters…Vivid in the best sense of the word.”—Kirkus Reviews

Doctor Warren thought to ask them to do that. No, don't think of Doctor Warren. But I must think of him. I have been unable to think of anything else in the near six weeks that we have been here. I have a score to settle with Doctor ...
No more Doctor Warren, our family friend. He's general of the Massachusetts troops now. My father holds him up to us as a hero. The hero was here last night. Drinking with my father. Warren is not a drinking man.
And Warren is no longer a doctor, but a general, talking about going to the hill today and dying up to his knees in blood. "For all you've done raising an army, you couldn't command a group of bell ringers at the Cockerel," Rachel told ...
Reason one, as John Adams would say, because I can scarce think for worrying that my friend Doctor Warren will take it in his head to go to the hill today. Has he been around?" "No." "Good. Likely he's still sleeping it off.
Not a fine figure of a man like Doctor Warren. Father was short. And somewhat rotund. But he was a good man, a decent man, and kindly. He was a good father. I loved him. But in this last year he had turned our fives around.
