Lucinda lives in Texas territory with her parents and brothers when Mexico and the U.S. begin warring over the territory. There is a memorable scene where Lucinda joins a nighttime party on the streets with music and dancing… but this is all I can really remember. The parts about the actual battle at the Alamo were a little difficult to follow, especially since the main character is a girl, and thus is not really at the scene of battle, only learning what happens secondhand. Afterwards, their family and neighbors embark on a horrid escape journey, running through the wilderness, many dying on the way as they escape, only to be told – after they’re past halfway – that the war is over, it’s safe to go back. Not my favorite book in the series, but tells the story of the Alamo from an American girl’s perspective.
