After Arabella's father is jailed for his part in the short-lived 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion in Toronto, her mother just cannot cope. The family is ostracized, they lose their home and they have no income -- yet Arabella's mother still doesn't take action. So it is up to twelve-year-old Arabella to find new lodgings and to get employment so they have money to live on. And as if that weren't enough to worry about, her older brother Charlie has vanished. Readers will cheer for the heroine in this "riches to rags" story as Arabella struggles to keep her family afloat while awaiting her father's release from prison. A Rebel's Daughter includes an Historical Note giving readers the cultural context of the Upper Canada Rebellion, a map showing 1837 Toronto, as well as fascinating documents and photographs from this pivotal time period.

From one of Canada's best loved children's writers comes the enthralling tale of a brave young girl caught up in the American Revolutionary War. It is 1777 and Phoebe Olcott is thrown headlong into the horrors of war when her beloved cousin Gideon is hanged for being a British spy. When she finds a message left by Gideon containing the names of Loyalist families to be protected by the King's army, Phoebe knows she must deliver the message to the general at Fort Ticonderoga. She sets out into the wilderness and soon meets up with Jem, a young Loyalist travelling to the safety of British Canada. As they travel across the country facing rebel guns, wild animals and worse, Phoebe and Jem discover they have a growing attraction for each other. But her own mission cannot be ignored and Phoebe once again finds herself alone, freezing and near death before she is reunited with Jem on the shores of Lake Ontario.

LAURA SECORD A STORY OF COURAGE

The war between Great Britain and the United States was a bitter one. For two years, from the summer of 1812 to the winter of 1814, fierce and bloody battles were fought. Laura Secord never thought of herself as brave. She was gentle, shy, and soft-spoken. But she was brave. When American officers took over her home, demanding food, she heard them boasting about a plan that would give them an easy victory over the British troops. Laura's husband, James, would have gladly warned the British, but he had been badly injured. It fell to Laura to make the grueling trip. Janet Lunn, one of the country's finest writers of historical fiction, recounts the tale of Laura's dreadful journey with fresh detail and masterly prose. Her writing is perfectly complemented by Maxwell Newhouse's astounding paintings.

It looked like an ordinary root cellar—And if twelve-year-old Rose hadn't been so unhappy in her new home, where she'd been sent to live with unknown relatives, she probably would never have fled down the stairs to the root cellar in the first place. And if she hadn't, she never would have climbed up into another century, the world of the 1860s, and the chaos of Civil War…
