Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I'm excited about the 7th Caroline book, Traitor in the Shipyard. While researching and writing the first six Caroline Abbott books, I started a file of ideas for a mystery. Caroline lives right on the border between the United States and British territory during the War of 1812, and people in her town worry about traitors causing trouble. Real incidents inspired this mystery, and I hope it keeps you guessing!

From the Back Cover

CAROLINE is worried when she learns that British spies may be lurking in Sackets Harbor, seeking information about American warships. When a long-lost friend of Papa's shows up in town, Papa is delighted to give him a job at Abbott's Shipyard--but soon strange things start going wrong there. Caroline is sure a spy is making trouble at the yard. But is it one of Abbott's trusted workers, whom she has known all her life--or is it Papa's dear friend?

More About the Author

Bestselling writer Kathleen Ernst is the award-winning author of 26 mystery, historical fiction, and non-fiction books for adults and young readers. Her latest books include "Heritage of Darkness," the fourth Chloe Ellefson Historic Sites mystery for adults from Midnight Ink, and "Traitor In The Shipyard," her seventh Caroline Abbott children's novel from American Girl.

Over the years Kathleen's work has earned numerous honors, including multiple Edgar and Agatha mystery award nominations, and an Emmy for educational programming. To date, readers have purchased over one million printed, electronic, and audio copies of her books.

Kathleen is the author of a nonfiction history book about the American Civil War, "Too Afraid to Cry: Maryland Civilians in the Antietam Campaign," an alternate selection of the History Book Club. It tells the stories of non-combatants who, 150 years ago, found themselves caught up in the bloodiest day in American history.

For ten years Kathleen wrote instructional video scripts for public television; honors for those include an Emmy, Platinum Best of Show Aurora Award, and a Wilbur Schramm Award of Excellence.

Kathleen has a Masters Degree in History Education and Writing from Antioch University, where her self-designed program focused on nontraditional methods of teaching and learning history--with a special emphasis on historical fiction. She spent over a decade as a Curator of Interpretation and Collections with the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, Historic Sites Division, which provided great material for her novels.

She lives near Madison, Wisconsin with her husband Scott and Sophie the cat. Some of her greatest pleasures include gardening, learning folk crafts, traveling to research new books, and hearing from readers. To that end, she maintains an extensive website, an author's page on Facebook, and a blog called Sites and Stories on WordPress.

I really love Caroline's time period and Kathleen Ernst has written some of the best AG mysteries to date, so I was excited to read this one. The mystery isn't very complicated and it isn't difficult to figure out. What shines here is the author's research. I could easily picture Sackets Habor and everything that was happening. I learned a lot about shipbuilding in that era. I also really liked that Caroline learns that good and bad are not necessarily black and white. She learns that sometimes adults make tough decisions that may be wrong and right at the same time. It's a good decision for kids to learn. As usual Caroline is an interesting and appealing heroine with enough spunk to appeal to modern girls but enough interest in ladylike things to be more historically accurate than Felicity (who is one of my favorites).
