KIRKUS REVIEW

Christmas Eve, 1777, at the ragged, wind-torn Valley Forge encampment. The darkest moment of the patriots' cause comes and General Washington is ready to tender his resignation to the Continental Congress. His soldiers' faith in the face of all adversity and a young corporal's bravely lying Christmas letter to his mother restore the General's confidence and will to fight on. A good Christmas plus-sale item.
