Title: Ashes

Author: Laurie Halse Anderson

Series: Seeds of America Trilogy

Recommended for: 6th grade and up

Pages: 298




Thoughts: This is the third book in this thrilogy and she took quite a few years to complete the third book.  I did like the completion of the story because it was a realistic account of what could have happened to people in that era.  I loved reading about how other people may have lived and all the trials they underwent. I think teenagers will like this book if they like having a peek at a different time in history. Curzon and Isabel are very well developed in the three books.

Synopsis: As the Revolutionary War rages on, Isabel and Curzon have narrowly escaped Valley Forge—but their relief is short-lived. Before long they are reported as runaways, and the awful Bellingham is determined to track them down. With purpose and faith, Isabel and Curzon march on, fiercely determined to find Isabel’s little sister Ruth, who is enslaved in a Southern state—where bounty hunters are thick as flies.

Heroism and heartbreak pave their path, but Isabel and Curzon won’t stop until they reach Ruth, and then freedom, in this grand finale to the acclaimed Seeds of America trilogy from Laurie Halse Anderson.
