Surprise at Yorktown (Adventures in Odyssey's Imagination Station book 15) by Marianne Hering and Nancy I. Sanders

The Imagination Station series headed out on an adventure that traveled back to the American Revolution that lasted for not only one book, but 3 different books.  The first book, The Red Coats are Coming (book 13) started this fun adventure of exploring the American Revolution by taking the cousins, Beth and Patrick, back in time to Yorktown.  You can read my review of that book by clicking here.  The second book, Captured on the High Seas (book 14), takes the cousins for an adventure on a American ship that is captured by the British.  And the newest and last book in this adventure, Surprise at Yorktown (book 15), ends with the surrender of the British at Yorktown.

Find out more about this newest book by reading the summary about the book and my review.
From the Back Cover:
"We need a miracle," Patrick said, "or this war will never end!"

Travel through history with Patrick and Beth and witness the battle of Yorktown, 1781.  Trouble starts in an underground den where the cousins discover British General Cornwallis's secret plan to win the war.  They must escape to warn George Washington--the future of the United States is at stake.  Along the way they meet a mysterious courier, James Armistead.  But is he traitor or friend?  In this final American Revolution adventure, Patrick and Beth struggle to escape from the enemy camp, survive a terrifying storm, and doge exploding cannonballs.  Will they be able to save their country--and their lives?

My Review:
I thought that this was a great wrap up to the 3 book series on the American Revolution.  I love how the story brings history to life and helps kids to connect the events of history together in their minds.  It also stirs up the want to actually see these sites in real life!  How fun would it be to read this 3 book series and then have a family trip to where it all really happened?!   These books are so great for kids ages 7 and up as they are exciting little adventures that also teach history and Christian moral principles.  So pick up these three books and learn a little about the American Revolution while reading an exciting story!

Make sure to check out the list of the books in this series here.
