Storyteller by Patricia Reilly Giff

Reviewed by Mrs. Bruno at Arongen

An old drawing on the wall in her aunt's home sparks Elizabeth's interest in her ancestor known as Zee. The story goes back and forth between the 21st century and the 18th century. Zee lived in upstate New York with her family on the farm. When the revolutionary war breaks out, families and neighbors are divided. After a tragic event, Zee is forced to find her father and brother on the battlefield. As Elizabeth retraces Zee's history, a kinship forms across the centuries and their two lives are intertwined.
