From the Back Cover
Hannah's life has become a series of challenges.
Hannah knows she should pay more attention to her needlework, but she just can't seem to get it right. She's much more comfortable nursing a fragile spring lamb back to health than counting stitches. And how can she concentrate on her sewing when the war is so close? Everyone in Fairfield is doing all they can to help the colonial army battle the British for independence. Even her brother Ben longs to join the fight. What can Hannah do to help?See all Product description

Hannah is nine years old. She loves animals, and she loves being with her family. She's very responsible and respectful. She is also very persevering. At first, the lamb had refused to drink the milk Hannah was offering it. Hannah didn't give up. She dipped some cloth in the milk and let the lamb drink from it.
Ben is persevering and brave. When Ben asked his father if he could fight for freedom in the Revolutionary war, his father said, "NO, I cannot allow it." Ben wanted to go even though he knew he would probably die. He continued to ask his dad if he could join.
Hannah's father is a loving and concerned parent. He didn't want Ben to go because he had a big brother named Ben who died in the French and Indian War. Ben's father didn't want any of his family to die.
I would recommend this book for ages eight and over, because it's an easy chapter book, and it has two good cliffhangers in the middle and in the end. In the middle were not sure if the lamb will live or not. In the end, we're not sure if Ben will come back from the war. It was a pretty good book even though it lacked humor, action, and some description.
The story takes place during the Revolutionary War. Hannah's older brother wants to fight but their father says no, because his brother went to fight and died. That's why he doesn't his son to battle. My favorite part was when her father said she could take care of Smoke (who had no name at the time). I rated the book four stars. I liked the way the author described every thing, but I wish the story was a lot longer. I enjoyed the book and I think you would too if you love animals.
I recommend this book for people that like old time books. My favorite part is when Hannah is sewing Ben's clothes. She stitches an "H" in the collar of his shirt. She was hoping one day he would find the "H" and remember her.
