Beneath the Heart
It’s the Revolutionary War and Phoebe’s family farm has become the headquarters for the American army at the Saratoga battlefield. When a dying soldier begs Phoebe to deliver the cryptic message “beneath the heart” to his wife Lucy, and Phoebe’s mother dies in childbirth, Phoebe takes her infant sister on a dangerous wagon ride to safety. With skirmishes and soldiers from both sides of the battle all around her, Phoebe is determined to deliver the mysterious message and protect her new sister. Along the way she convinces British General Burgoyne to surrender, and discovers that a twelve-year-old girl in 1775 can have opinions and independence.
