It's the summer of 1777, and twelve-year-old Sarah Moore has left her family on the Kentucky frontier to live with relatives in Williamsburg, Virginia. In Kentucky, Sarah had longed to return to Virginia, but now that she is finally there, it no longer feels like home. She misses her family terribly, and worries about her oldest brother, a Patriot soldier who is fighting in the Revolutionary War. When Sarah and her two older cousins, Tabitha and Abigail, get a new tutor, a beautiful, educated, and well-traveled French woman named Gabrielle, Sarah finally begins to feel happy again. But Sarah's Uncle Ethan suspects Gabrielle of being a Tory spy. Could Sarah's beloved tutor and friend really be their enemy?
Stranger in Williamsburg is another good adventure featuring Sarah Moore. The author's descriptions of Williamsburg and the daily life there during the Revolutionary War were very interesting. However, I preferred the frontier setting and pioneer story of the first book about Sarah. Young readers who enjoy historical fiction, particularly stories set in colonial times, will probably enjoy this book. I look forward to reading Sarah's next adventure.
