A Line in the Sand: The Alamo Diary of Lucinda Lawrence, Gonzales, Texas, 1836 (Dear America)
A Line in the Sand The Alamo Diary of Lucinda Lawrence Gonzales Texas 1836 - Dear America Author:Sherry Garland In the journal she receives for her twelfth birthday in 1835, Lucinda Lawrence describes the hardships her family and other residents of the "Texas colonies" endure when they decide to face the Mexicans in a fight for their freedom.
Ms. Lucinda Lawrence definitely lived a life of chaos during the time of the battle of the Alamo. But she's a courageous one who will steal your heart and leave you wanting more at the end of the book. And with that comment I must say it will have you crying, and crying, and crying. But it's yet another of my favorite books and I'm glad to have it on my shelf.
This book is one of those that you keep because it's special, one that you'll read over and over and over and never get tired of it. It's one that little girls will see and immediately want to read it. My little sister had this one read to her and absolutely loved it, and she was only 7 years old.
The way Sherry Garland wrote this book will make you believe you are there right along Ms. Lawrence and her friend and family. But let me tell you Texas was not the place to be at that time!!!
