Still, everyday life must go on and young Maddy Rosemust help her mother, especially since her father's death at the Battle of Princetonand now with her beloved brother Jonathan off with Washington's army. But whenchildhood games become life-and-death actions, Maddy Rose is drawn ever deeperinto events that will explode beyond her imagining. As young America stands onthe very brink of its fight for freedom, it becomes clear that even the smallest ofcitizens can play the largest of parts, and that the role of a patriot has nothing todo with age and everything to do with heart.
