Reb And The Redcoats
Reb And The Redcoats
Grammar Level Assigned Literature
Price: $14.95

In an interesting turnabout, the Revolutionary War is seen through the eyes of a British family to whom an American prisoner of war has been entrusted.

Technically the young prisoner is in Uncle Lawrence's custody, but the children soon forge a forbidden friendship with him after he nearly dies in an attempted escape. He becomes the Reb and they, his Redcoats. But when they learn of some events leading to his coming to Europe, even Uncle Lawrence, embittered by the unjust death of a friend in America, thaws toward him-but this doesn't stop the Reb from scheming to escape.

Constance Savery deftly weaves themes of trust and forgiveness into an interesting plot with likeable characters.

5 of 5 What a Great Book! October 31, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Iowa United States  
I read this book with my two kids ages 9 & 12 while were studying Volume 4: American History. What a wonderful book! The examples of how other people should be treated are stunning, and such a beautiful thing to hear in today's world. Not only does the book emphasize treating people with respect and dignity, but it also gives examples of how we never really know who people are, where they come from, or what they have done. My kids loved the book too - the interesting characters, the twists and turns. They kept begging me to read more of it. Just a really great, lovely book. Don't skip this one.
