Children’s Book Committee – September Pick
Like a River
by Kathy Cannon Wiechman
Two teenaged Union soldiers, each hiding a secret, face danger and the horrors of gunfire and imprisonment. A gripping story of loyalty and courage.
Our Young Reviewer says:
This book is unique because it is a war story told from a soldier’s perspective. I liked how personal the characters were when telling their story. I would definitely recommend this book.
