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

John was apprenticing with my father. "Is the sentry coming?" my father asked John. "Yessir. He thought he'd be needed on the hill. Was ready to go fight. But they told him he was more needed here." A guard was posted outside the shop ...
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.
Men like John and Sam Adams and John Hancock were this minute riding to the congress in Philadelphia to find out what the rules would be. "Go and talk to the man, Sarah," Father said sofdy. "You have my permission to tell him anything ...
John was paying mind, sensing something. I couldn't allow that John's eyes were blue and very becalmed. He was completely besotted with my father. The famous Paul Revere; the British spy, Private Howe had called him.
