Item Description...
A Secret Journey

As the winter of 1704 approaches, New Englanders are reeling from the news of war with the French and Indians. Meanwhile a mysterious letter has arrived for the widow Madame Sarah Kemble Knight, instructing her to bring the twin servants, twelve-year-olds Hester and Philena, on an unfamiliar journey from Boston toward New Haven, Connecticut. But Madame Knight decides to take only one of the sisters, who have been bound in servitude since infancy.

However Philena soon risks her life to follow Hester and the widow. When they meet up, the trip turns perilous. The travelers face drowning, starvation, and exhaustion as they make their way through menacing woods, hazardous swamps, and wild rivers. But neither girl can imagine the real reason for the journey that will end in New York and change their lives forever....

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Excellant addition to the American Sisters series.  Nov 24, 2000
Twelve-year-old twins Hester and Philena, indentured servants to Madame Sarah Kemble Knight in her Boston home, have no memory of their parents. Yet their predictable life, the only one they know, is about to change. Madame Knight receives a letter summoning her to New Haven. She decides to bring her fifteen-year-old daughter, Polly, along, as well as Hester. But a devastated Philena is forced to stay behind, to care for Madame Knight's mother, Goodwife Kemble. However, Goodwife Kemble sends Philena and the family's Indian slave, Cato, after Madame Knight, to give her something she forgot to bring along. Before the two can catch up to the travelers, Cato runs away to freedom, abandoning Philena in the wilderness. She must travel on, completely on her own. Even when she finally catches up to Madame Knight, Polly, and Hester, things don't get much easier. The four travelers face every danger imaginable on the difficult journey by horseback along the Boston Post Road, but Hester and Philena discover things about themselves and each other that they never knew, and find their own hidden strength and courage. I highly reccomend this book, and the entire series, to girls who enjoy historical fiction.
