I am reading Hope's Crossing currently Hope the little girl is in the chicken pox home. The "Pox Home" is what they call it. Her friend Mother Thomas has a severe case of the chicken pox. They are afraid that Hope might get the "Pox". One thing you need to know is there is a war going on the Revolutionary War. Mother Thomas is on the British side. They learn to make friends and depend on each other for different reasons. Mother Thomas is getting ready to die. Hope is trying to find a way to get home to Fairfeild, Connecticut with Mother Thomas's help. Will they get there?Will they get there safely?
