Delightful telling of Molly Pitcher's Story.8 mars 2012
- Publié sur Amazon.com
This is a most delightful telling of all the events leading up to Molly Pitcher's day of heroism at the Battle of Monmouth during the American Revolution. We learn from the beginning how she was a servant before she got married and she and her husband didn't wish to be separated during the war and so she along with other wives would help the soldiers out. There are more details about the day at Monmouth than I've heard before, such as how she was so exhausted at the end of the day she just lay down. And the soldiers who were so grateful for her having given them water throughout the day carried her and her husband off the field. The illustrations are very lovely, she is perhaps portrayed more glamorously than I think is probably realistic. But that is easily overlooked and helps with the story. The writing is simple and refreshing. And the book is appropriate for both the young and the old. A definite five out of five star book.
