    When sixteen-year-old Josie Summers murders her abusive stepfather, she disguises herself in his clothes, only to be discovered by a young Methodist minister who invites her to assist in his ministry. When "Joseph's" true identity is revealed, the guilt-ridden Reverend John Trethman marries her. Shortly afterward, John is kidnapped by British soldiers and forced to minister to their wounded and dead. Josie again dons a man's disguise and joins the North Carolina militia.

    Overall

    I found Morgan's book to be a very interesting look at the Revolutionary War from a woman's perspective. The heroine is accidently pulled into the war. Morgan's style of writing is highly descriptive and can be too lengthy at times, but it does much to give a flavor and feel for the times.

    The Christian viewpoint seemed realistic for that period of time. I did not find it bothersome, but gave me a deeper appreciation for the moral difficulties of the time.

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a perspective of the Revolutionary War from the viewpoint of those living in the occupied areas.
