This book continues the adventures of Ben, John, and Fred. Ben receives a letter that rocks his world and sends him on a mission, that brings him to a small settlement on the Tennessee River know as Pittsburgh Landing, the site of a battle now know as Shiloh. Meanwhile, Fred fights through the injuries sustained in the battle of Wilson’s Creek. You’ll reunite with several characters from the last book as well as some new additions.
Retreat is aimed at middle schoolers to high school teens. It’s a book that blends adventure with Christian values.
It’s a great read, packed full of adventure that any boy should love, while also including a good dose of historical facts. Use it as a fun read or a resource for your history curriculum.
It will hopefully be published by fall 2016
