Give Me Liberty, by L.M. Elliott, Katherine Tegen Books, HarperCollinsChildrens ISBN: 978-0-06-074421-2. Liberty is written for ages 9 and up, appropriate for forth grade through middle school readers, but, I am enjoying this book immensely. Elliott's research vividly presents life at Williamsburg on the eve of the American Revolution. I love her descriptions of their food and contemporary songs.

Then Came Faith, Book One, by Louise M. Gouge, published by Emerald Pointe Books. ISBN 0-97851-372-X. Gouge, author of five novels including Hannah Rose, and winner of numerous awards for her fiction, shows the struggles Christians dealt with over slavery: She "skillfully positioned the protagonists in thought-battles," giving the reader insight into the struggles of "conflicting religious convictions" held between northern and southern Christians.
