Once on This Island by Gloria Whelan

When war erupts between England and America in 1812, it brings change and uncertainty-even to Michigans remote Mackinac Island. For young Mary OShea, the hardest change is the departure of her father, who leaves Mackinac to join the American Army. With her sister and brother, Mary must tend the farm, deal with the hardships of British occupation, and hope for the safe return of their father. ?The story, told with quiet humor, brings to life this episode in history. The readers feels the beauty of the island, the pain of separation, [and] the anxiety and fear produced by war.-V. ?[S]mooth writing, vivid characters, and strong sense of place make this a good choice for libraries and a treasure for ones in the Great Lakes area.-BL.
