Anna Sunday and her brother Jed must travel from their home in Pennsylvania to Winchester, Virginia, during the Civil War to save their wounded pa, and everyone knows a journey like that is not safe for girls. So determined Anna crops off her beautiful dark curls and vows to give up her dresses and her name until she finds him and brings him safely home. Armed only with Samson, a crotchety horse that only obeys commands in the form of Bible verses, an old hand-drawn map, rolled up trousers, and a whole lot of faith, Anna Sunday sets off on a journey readers will find full of humor, history, and most of all, heart.
