Hopes Crossing by Joan Elizabeth Goodman

They came from across Long Island Sound, Tories in search of plunder and ransom, bringing terror to Hope Wakemans Connecticut home. The family is defenseless now that Father is away serving in General Washingtons army. They can only watch as Noah Thomas and his crew strip the house of treasured belongings. And before she realizes what is happening, Hope finds herself a captive and a slave to Thomass ill-tempered wife. Hope has one unlikely ally: Thomass plucky mother is a different sort of Tory, one who sees beyond partisan divisions. Together the frail old woman and the girl set off in search of safety, on a journey that takes them from the tiny villages of Long Island to the bustling Tory stronghold of Manhattan. A map helps readers follow along on this journey, during which many astonishing things are revealed to Hope about herself and her companion.
