Whispers of War
The War of 1812 Diary of Susanna MerrittBook - 2002
Susanna Merritt is 11 years old when she hears talk of yet another war. The youngest daughter in a family of "late loyalists" living in the Niagara region of Upper Canada, Susanna knows too well the heartache war can bring. Throughout her childhood she has heard her parents' terrifying stories about the American Revolution, not to mention their English servant's tales of the Napoleonic wars. Unlike her older brother, Hamilton, Susanna has no wish to exchange the dull simplicity of life on the Merritt farm (near what is now St. Catharines, Ontario) for the excitement of a military campaign against her parents' former homeland.
