"Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, 1777"--Cover.
From the Publisher:
Critically acclaimed author Kristiana Gregory's award-winning THE WINTER OF RED SNOW is now back in print with a gorgeous new package!

Eleven-year-old Abigail Jane Stewart's fictionalized diary about her life, family, friends, and neighbors, and the sides they have to choose in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, during the height of the Revolutionary War, renders a vivid portrayal of one of the most memorable and crucial winters in American history.

Abby's life with her family is quickly upended when they are awakened by the unfamiliar sound of drums. General George Washington is leading the Continental soldiers into their winter encampment at Valley Forge, PA.

Hardship is a constant companion for soldiers and citizens alike throughout the winter, and in her diary, Abby pieces together the beauty, pain, and blessings of this long, revolutionary winter.

Author Bio
Kristiana Gregory
Kristiana Gregory writes historical fiction and is best known for her Dear America series. She does a great deal of research for her books, visiting the places she's going to write about and finding out useful information such as what the weather was like, or what people thought about, by looking through journals and almanacs of that time. Kristiana feels that her readers can relate to the characters in her book because the problems they deal with--learning to make good decisions or getting through hard times--are universal.
