OF PATRICK HENRY'S FAMILY
Orlando : Gulliver Books,
me my freedom or let me go to my death." This quote is not quite
the famous one we associate with Patrick Henry, one of the best orators
of the American Revolution. But these are the words Anne hears her
mother speak shortly before she dies. You see, Sarah Henry, the wife
of Patrick, has been kept in the cellar for years and has not been allowed
out. Not since she tried to drown her infant son. Not since
she ran away with her toddler in the pouring rain. Not since she
went mad. With the country in turmoil and Patrick Henry a central
figure in the Revolution, he own household was out of control. Read
about his family and their troubles in Or Give Me Death.
