Travel two centuries back in time to the final battle of the American Revolution at Yorktown, Virginia. Cousins Patrick and Beth sneak through trenches and race across battlefields to warn General George Washington about a dangerous spy. The spy is stealing his secret plans and giving them to the British. Cannons roar and the ground shakes as the struggle reaches a climax. Washington's ragtag soldiers are up against the most powerful army in the world. Will Patrick and Beth witness the American Revolution come to an end? Or will they be caught in a dangerous trap they can't escape?

My Review:

This is my first book in this series and I loved it!
My favorite part is when the boy get's sprayed by the skunk, it really made me laugh.
My least favorite part was when Beth and Patrick find out that they are on the red coats side.
The lesson I learned is that you should always look to God for help.

What Mom Says
I have been a fan of Adventures in Odyssey for years,  I love that this book opens up a discussion about not only history but about God as well. I think this series will be a fun addition to any Christian history program for a fun little historical fiction add on, Or as a jumping point for a year long history theme.
