Fires of Jubilee

“Fires of Jubilee is a compelling book of historical fiction that captures the flavor of the most dramatic time in your nation's history. Alison Hart has crafted a work that will satisfy and educate young readers as well as their parents. Scenes in the book give an accurate portrayal of slavery in the uplands of Virginia, and of the dreams and aspirations of a girl named Abby.”
—John Heatwole, Historian and Author of The Burning-Sheridan's Campaign of Destruction in the Shenandoah Valley
