About this title


Growing up on her family's South Carolina plantation in the 1780s, 11-year-old Sarah Boone dreams of following in her genteel mother's footsteps and becoming the mistress of a great house. Although she wishes to please her parents and live up to her responsibilities, she struggles to resist her rebellious and tomboyish ways. Sarah spends much of her time alone until a new slave family comes to Boone Hall and Sarah befriends Rose, one of the slave children. Soon she finds herself troubled by the principles of slavery as she becomes aware of the injustices around her. When the British invade and occupy Charles Towne in 1780, Sarah and Rose together must face new hardships as their worlds begin to change.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1780, eleven-year-old Sarah Boone is faced with many unforeseen changes to her tranquil life at Boone Hall. Struggling to act like a proper young woman despite her rebellious and tomboyish nature, she finds herself striving to perform the daily tasks of her mother, who is pregnant and relying on Sarah's help more and more. In addition, the arrival of a new slave family to Boone Hall leaves Sarah torn over the concept of slavery and her family's use of slaves on the plantation. As Sarah tries to cope with her conflicting feelings, the American Revolution erupts, bringing British forces to her doorstep. With so many events unfolding, Sarah soon discovers the best way to appreciate life and its blessings is through spending time with the family and friends who matter most.
