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

I asked, pretending ignorance. I have found lately that it is a great boon to be simpleminded. "He took many rides." "Is he here?" he asked again. "He's working in his shop." "Would you ask, please, if he would see me?" So I asked.
To the Sons of Liberty or the Committee of Safety, when they asked him to take all those rides? "Twouldn't be seemly, him a man of God. He's educated. Likely at Harvard." Having gone no further than North Writing School, my father has ...
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 all the time. My father's press must not be left without ...
