" I was a really, really great book. I wish they made a second one!P.S. I've given my little sister a shelf on my account, that's what this is. " said.

" Perhaps my favorite in the American Girl History Mystery Series, this book was one that I found thrilling and very interesting. Another very, very good read by Sarah Masters Buckey! " said.

" Both more gripping and more frustrating than many of these stories. " said.

" Decent historical fiction of French Indian war, depicting life in a frontier fort.Does well showing Indian-English tensions, without being politically correct.Explores themes of trust, kindness, and taking initiative.Back cover says 10 and up, and that's about right. The story begins with a family's parents and baby brother kidnapped while the two sisters are hidden in the cellar. Rather mature content, but manageable, not graphic, and the rest is much tamer. " said.

"All ten-year-old Rebecca Percy and her younger sister Selinda could do was watch in horror from their hiding place as Abenaki Indians captured their parents and baby brother and burned their New Hampshire frontier home to the ground one dark night in 1752. Two years later, the sisters live with the kind Widow Tyler at a nearby fort. Rebecca helps with chores, and Selinda has hired herself out as a maid to the cruel Cutter family. At the same time that the sisters learn that the Cutters plan to return to civilization before Selinda's contract is up, and plan to take Selinda with them, the soldiers bring a boy rescued from captivity among the Abenaki to the fort. Widow Tyler takes the boy, Isaac, in. But after spending most of his childhood in captivity, Isaac is more Indian than English, and seems to want to return to the Abenaki family that adopted him after he was captured. Rebecca doesn't understand how Isaac, torn from his home to live among the people who killed his family, would chose to remain with his captors rather than return to the society he was born into. After a series of thefts in the fort, Rebecca is quick to suspect Isaac, especially after the one thing that she may be able to sell to buy back Selinda's contract is stolen. To find out what happens next, and to discover who the real thief is.

This was one of my favorite books from the History Mysteries series. I loved the historical setting. I recommend this book to readers who enjoyed other books in the series, or who like middle grade historical fiction.
