Eleven-year-old Hannah Perley and her family are trying to maintain a sense of normalcy as the Revolutionary War rages around them. But when British troops get too close to Fairfield, Connecticut, Hannah's father and other men from town leave to try to defend their property as their families escape up the hillside. What will they do when all the British leave in their wake are piles of ashes where homes and shops once stood?Jean Van Leeuwen has once again created a wondrous blend of the joys and sorrows of everyday colonial girlhood combined with the larger themes of war and history. Hannah's Helping Hands contains a map with locations from the story highlighted, as well as an author's note with historical information and a recipe for traditional colonial johnnycake. This clear-eyed, well-rounded view of pioneer girlhood, along with Hannah's struggle to define who she is and what she can and should be like, will be welcomed by today's girls.The award-winning Jean Van Leeuwen's previous works of Americana (all Dial) include the popular Going West, Across the Wide Dark Sea, and Bound for Oregon, called "deeply moving" and "fresh and heartfelt" by Publishers Weekly.
