About this title


Set in 1777, Phoebe Olcott gets involved in a dangerous mission when, after her cousin is hanged for being a spy, she decides to deliver a message to the British general in order to save a group of Loyalist families from harm.

From the Back Cover:

"Janet Lunn is one of Canada's best writers of [historical fiction for young readers].... This is a gripping adventure story that is steeped in Canadian history." -The London Free Press

"Readers of The Root Cellar and Shadow in Hawthorne Bay will rejoice. This is a contemporary book, yet is also old-fashioned in the very best sense of the term." -The Calgary Herald

"An exciting story, well told, but perhaps its greatest strength is its beautifully realized central character. Phoebe Olcott's journey on foot mirrors an equally momentous personal and spiritual journey, one that maps the develop-ment of a wise, moral child into a brave and entirely admirable young woman." -The Globe and Mail

"Very engaging ... suspenseful ... emotionally compelling.... Janet Lunn again proves herself the best young adult romance writer we've got. If you needed your hankies for Shadow in Hawthorne Bay, get them out again for The Hollow Tree." -Quill & Quire

"Janet Lunn formulates an enthralling tale rich in historical accuracy dealing with emotional bonds and the horrors of the American Revolution." -Kitchener-Waterloo Record, The Year's Best Books for Kids

"From the opening sentence, we are borne into The Hollow Tree's] world with such assurance that we know at once we are in good hands." -The Ottawa Citizen

"An enthralling novel for young readers.... It is filled with danger and adventure, with a plucky heroine at its centre." -The Halifax Daily News
