  • Brothers at War

    Margaret Whitman Blair

    Paperback (White Mane Kids, Oct. 30, 2009)
    The Henry Brothers are opposites: Rob, dark and intense, is shy and a perfectionist, while redheaded Jamie is an easygoing, sociable fellow. They have quarreled and competed with each other since they were small boys. It is therefore not surprising that when Rob becomes a Confederate reenactor, Jamie shows up as a Union drummer boy. Also at the reenactment of the Battle of Antietam is the object of their latest competition: the lovely Sarah Singleton. Dressed in Civil War-era clothes, the three pose for an old style photograph, only to mysteriously travel back in time to the actual Antietam campaign in September, 1862. This time the brothers really are at war!
