My name is Abigail. This is my story...

Eleven-year-old Abigail Jane Stewart's life with her family is upended when Abby and her sisters are awakened by the unfamiliar sound of drums. General George Washington is leading the Continental soldiers into their winter encampment at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. The presence of the army forces the town to face the realities of the Revolutionary War, and sides must be chosen.

Hardship is a constant companion for soldiers and citizens alike throughout the winter, and in her diary, Abby pieces together the beauty, pain, and blessings of this long revolutionary winter.
