Read full description of the books:
In this children's adventure story set during the Civil War, Anna and her younger brother Jed receive word that their father has been shot. Unwilling to believe the worst, Anna chops off her braid and becomes Adam and decides to set out together on a quest to find him, traveling from Pennsylvania to Virginia on horseback.
For all of the adventure that is contained in this book's pages, I never found it all that interesting. Yes, the characters were off on daring escapades, but I never got caught up in the excitement that the back cover had promised.
Possibly, this could be due to the fact that this book is not very believable. Everything is always very neat and tidy, and whatever dangers Anna and Jed find themselves in, they always manage to escape cleanly and breezily. The idea of two young children traveling approximately 80 miles unaccompanied, in the midst of a war, could raise skepticism, and yet, stranger things have happened when a country is at war. But from there, the tale grows more and more unbelievable. A silly thing was that their means of transportation, an elderly farm-horse named Samuel, only obeys commands given in Bible verses. This seemed ridiculous to me and simply impossible. During their travels, the siblings are set upon by thieves, and Anna, a small 12 year old girl, takes on multiple grown men in a fight - and wins. And if that's not eyebrow-raising enough, she does so again later in the book, except the unfortunate men now caught in her path are now guards rather than thieves.
Of course, her and her brother's hunch that their father was not actually dead ends up being correct, and once they reach Virginia, they manage to locate him with suspicious ease. It turns out, their father has been nursed back to health by a kindly woman who has allowed him to live at her own home, despite the fact that she is Confederate and he is a wounded Union soldier.
I felt that everything was wrapped up far too neatly, and that the book overall had shown nothing unexpected, believable, or unpredictable.
