Picking up where Chains left off, Isabel and Curzon have run away from their owners. They split up, and most of the book follows Curzon as he is dragged back into the army where he has his differences with his fellow conscripts and is marooned in desolate Valley Forge. Eventually, he is reunited with Isabel as their former owner Bellingham captures them, including placing an iron bracket around Isabel's neck, the key for which he wears on a necklace. ( )

‘Forge’ is book 2 of Anderson’s YA trilogy on the American Revolution, following ‘Chains’. The story continues with Curzon, intentionally (to be fed and maybe paid) and unintentionally (miserable soldier experience from book 1) joining the American rebel forces against the British red coats. The story dive deeply on the march to Valley Forge and the troops’ time at Valley Forge (hence the book’s name). At a later part of the book, Isabel (the original protagonist of ‘Chains’ re-emerges in the story, bringing on a new set of conflicts. As much as the soldiers suffer, Isabel’s suffering is cruel and diabolic.

‘Forge’ has the usual ailments of the second book syndrome. It has less creativity, less plot, and less action than ‘Chains’. I wasn’t on my toes for any part of it and put the book down often. Its strength is the novelization of pieced together historical details to tell the stories of life in Valley Forge through the eyes of Curzon as a Negro soldier then. At the start of every chapter, Anderson included snippets from soldiers’ letters, diary notations, officials’ documentations, including specific dates to fortify the details of her writing. The starvation, the lack of clothing, shoes, supplies, and the building of huts to sleep in are all painted into this story. The reader will never want to taste ‘firecake’ – flour + water and burned on heated stone. As a YA book, with the right mindset, this can be a very eye-opening book. With the wrong mindset, this can be a very dull book. For me, it wasn’t a page-turner, but I did appreciate the details I was reading.

Final book of the trilogy – ‘Ashes’.

One quote – on Love:
“…Marguerite gave birth to a son and then she died… Cesar was so filled with sorrow, he might have destroyed himself except for the baby. He decided to choose a name for his boy that would keep Marguerite alive… Cesar loved it when Marguerite would whisper to him, ‘Você é meu coração.’ He took out the most important word - coração. I stretched the sound of it. ‘Core-a-sao’. Cesar turned it into a word that sounded more like a name, the name of his son: Curzon.
‘Those are your parents!’ A smile broke across Isabel’s face. ‘That is a good story. But what does it mean, what your mother said?’
‘It means, ‘You are my heart.’’ I leaned forward, took her hands in mine, and whispered into her ear. ‘You have always been my heart, Country.’
Before I could kiss her, Isabel kissed me.” ( )

Another brilliant historical thriller/drama from Laure Halse Anderson. Nice to see the POV shift from Isabel to Curzon, as well as the massive amount of research LHA put into studying the time of the Revolutionary War. As usual, I can't wait to read the next book in the series - I hope the next one is told in Isabel's voice, though. ( )

More war history than book #1, but still very compelling. ( )
