Editorial Reviews

From the Author

In many ways Meet Caroline was the most challenging of the Caroline books to write. After many weeks of research, and thinking, I was coming to know Caroline in my imagination. But how could I best present her to readers? How could I introduce her personality, her challenges, her big dreams? How could I best describe her setting? And how could I manage those things--and still tell an exciting story? After many drafts, I'm happy with the result. I hope you are as well!

Kathleen Ernst has truly outdone herself. Say goodbye to those boring history history books and meet Caroline . Put yourself in Caroline's shoes as you bravely stand tall watching your father and cousin being taken prisoners . Enjoy reading to yourfather's crew at your family's shipyard. Can you feel the cold water splash on your face as you sail on Lake Ontario ? How would you handle the sudden shock of war ? Would you flee ? Would you just give up on America .On President James Madison ? Or , like Caroline , would you stay bravely helping your neighbor and grandmother assisting the gun crew? I was smiling the whole time (except for the part where I was choking with fear) . A #1 reader for everyone .

I really liked this book. Not the best for book reports, but okay. I think there should be more to it, though.
