As American colonists make war with Mother England, a 16-year-old girl, disguised as a boy, flees the murder of her abusive stepfather. Josie, now called Joseph, is befriended by the Reverend John Trethman and travels as his assistant as he serves tiny congregations in the Carolina mountains. Reverend John is kidnapped by the British and forced to minister to their wounded and dead. Josie joins the North Carolina militia and takes part in a battle that marks the turning point of the Revolution. Reader Lina Patel speaks as Josie/Joseph while Paul Boehmer presents John Thethman's point of view. Both readers fit the material well, creating a riveting account of difficult lives and times.
