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

Then the order to march. Their fifers and drummers played "Yankee Doodle," a song we had come to hate. For it mocked us. Regimental colors snapped in the morning breeze. We watched them go and I thought, My fatherstarted all this.
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 ...
And I thought, Debby is right. There is something more than friendship between them. Debby had thought so all along. Only Father didn't see it. What matters, Father? What's true? Or what people think? Warren left late.
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 protection.
So we both have things to settle with him then, I thought I watched Father as he stared into the cup, brooding. He was a handsome man in his own way. Not a fine figure of a man like Doctor Warren. Father was short. And somewhat rotund.
