Ashes: Seeds of America
Tonight BookPeople is delighted to welcome Laurie Halse Anderson for the long-awaited conclusion to the Seeds of America series, Ashes. Isabel and Curzon have just survived the grueling battle at Valley Forge, but where can they go next? Don’t miss this thrilling, gorgeous novel or this marvelous event.
Return to the American Revolution in this blistering conclusion to the trilogy that began with the bestselling National Book Award Finalist Chains and continued with Forge, which The New York Times called a return not only to the colonial era but to historical accuracy.
As the Revolutionary War rages on, Isabel and Curzon have narrowly escaped Valley Forge but their relief is short-lived. Before long they are reported as runaways, and the awful Bellingham is determined to track them down. With purpose and faith, Isabel and Curzon march on, fiercely determined to find Isabel s little sister Ruth, who is enslaved in a Southern state where bounty hunters are thick as flies.
Heroism and heartbreak pave their path, but Isabel and Curzon won t stop until they reach Ruth, and then freedom, in this grand finale to the acclaimed Seeds of America trilogy from Laurie Halse Anderson.
