The Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults. The War had no clear-cut loyalties - it divided families, friends and towns. Young Tim Meeker's 16 year old brother go off to fight with the Patriots while his father remains a reluctant British Loyalist in the Tory town of Redding, CT. Over the course of the war Tim learns that life teaches some bitter lessons and does not guarantee clear answers.
