Maggie's Dare: The Great Awakening
Norma Jean Lutz
Time Period:  1744  Slavery confuses Maggie Baldwin. It's 1744, and the tenderhearted twelve-year-old can't understand why her friend was given a young female slave as a Christmas present-or why her friend mistreats the miserable Caribbean girl. When a major spiritual revival breaks out, Maggie is convinced she must dare to help the slave. Using actual historical events to tell a compelling fictional story, Maggie's Dare explores both the Great Awakening and the early stirrings of the abolition movement, while showing young readers that they, too, can serve God by serving others. Sisters in Time books offer learning and fun, at a great price!
