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

"Has the whole world gone mad?" she said to me in passing. "He's so young and alive. Why does he want a rendezvous with death?" And without waiting for an answer, she'd run upstairs. Later I heard her sobbing in her room.
Having gone no further than North Writing School, my father has great respect for education. "Tell him 'later' and mayhap he won't come back," he advised. But now the man was back, coming through the gate, down the walk.
"Mama's gone." But there were tears in her eyes. "And all he cares about is the silver coffeepot he's making for Paul Dudley Sargent" She meant Father. "He cares about us. He's just brooding." I hated Debby and loved her all ...
