Sarah Fanum is thrust into the middle of the Revolutionary War. Having lost both her parents, she ends up volunteering for the Continental Army. More tragedy awaits her, but perhaps it will also lead to a new future.
This is a moving story of one woman's journey to find where she belongs after her life is turned upside down. Lynn Hubbard's attention to historical detail is outstanding. This short story also includes historical photos and maps.
Where I felt A Christmas Crossing fell a bit short is in grammar and typographical errors. Verb tenses would change in the middle of a chapter. Words were misspelled. I found that aspect distracting. A good editor would easily have caught these errors, making this a stronger story.
Overall, I'm glad I read it and I would consider another of Hubbard's stories in the future.
