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

Billy Dawes, who'd ridden with Father the night before Lexington, had smuggled Father's small press, copper plates, and tools out of Boston. Copper and paper were hard to come by. "These notes are worthless," Father said to John.
"Tell me how he rode out of Boston that night to Lexington." "There was no more riding out of Boston by that time. He was a wanted man. He had to sneak out and take a small boat across the Charles." "Ah, yes." He wrote feverishly, as if ...
