Title: Caroline's Secret Message Series: American Girls: Caroline #2 Illustrator: Robert Papp & Lisa Papp
Author: Kathleen Ernst
Caroline and Mama make a
dangerous trip across Lake Ontario to the British fort where Papa is a
prisoner. When Mama isn’t allowed to see Papa, it’s up to Caroline to pass a
secret message to him—right under the nose of a British guard. Caroline hopes
desperately that Papa will be able to use the information to escape. But can
she get the message to him? And even if she does, will Papa understand it? When
Caroline and Mama return home, all they can do is wait and hope. On Caroline’s
birthday, an unexpected gift lifts her heart.
This story begins with Caroline’s father still being
captured by the British. Winter is coming soon, and it’s getting harder to work
around the garden, and in the shipyard, but Caroline must help out around the
house because it’s what her father asked of her.
However, one day they get a huge surprise, but it didn’t
include her father. So, now she and her mother have decided to go try to get
him from the British. But, it may not turn out as well as they thought it
This was my favorite so far in this series! I adore
Caroline, and I felt so bad for her during this story. She’s such a strong and
brave little girl who must grow up too quickly because of everything that has
happened with her father. And when she does more courageous and brave things to
help save her father it made me really admire her.
I loved this book, and I can’t wait to read more about
