Gayle C. Krause has just had her MG Historical Fiction novel published.
With the spark of independence crackling in Colonial Philadelphia, three girls dress as boys and head to the river to put a perilous plan into action, but only two return. The third, a milliner’s assistant, is found drowned, with gold in her hems, coded spy letters in her bodice, and a journal implicating another sewing apprentice in the treacherous plot.
All eyes turn toward Perdy Rogers, Betsy Ross’ thirteen-year-old apprentice, but she’s no spy! With her life on the line, she struggles to untangle herself from the web of deceit and learns the hard way that freedom, whether an individual’s or a country’s, comes at a cost.
Book is available on Amazon.com.
If you like Revolutionary War historical fiction, the danger of spies, and the intricacies of pre-teen friendships, you will enjoy TWICE BETRAYED.
