Description

Newbery Medalist Hesse pens the diary of a Union girl living in the divided state of Delaware during the explosive first year of the Civil war — a conflict mirrored in Amelia's struggle to keep her parents' disintegrating marriage together. Amelia helps her dad tend the lighthouse on Fenwick Island, Delaware.
