Summary

When Wyn Mabie almost ran over the stranger with her home, she never could have guessed the effect it would have on the future of the nation. That stranger was General George Washington, whose headquarters had just been taken by the British. Hidden there were papers crucial to the success of the American army. But who could possibly make such a dangerous journey, sneak past British forces, and retrieve the papers? Wyn knows instantly that she must volunteer for this dangerous mission, for her family -- and for her new country.
