    Janet was born Janet Louise Swoboda on December 28, 1928 in Dallas, Texas, U.S.A, moved to Vermont when she was two and lived there until she was ten when the family moved to the outskirts of New York City She came to Canada in 1946 to go to Notre Dame College in Ottawa and then to Queen s University in Kingston, Ontario There she met and married Richard Lunn, a fellow student She has lived in Canada ever since Janet has five children, ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren Her husband died in 1987 Those, she says, are the bare bones of my life story The part that s interesting to readers has to do with reading, writing and daydreaming which are all, in my case, one and the same She calls herself a dedicated daydreamer and says she has been that, almost from the moment I was born Even before I could read I was dreaming up stories The sound of the wind in the ancient pine tree outside my window in our old farmhouse accompanied all my childhood imaginings When I was in my teens and living far from that beloved home, I began writing stories with the sound of that tree still singing in my head Years later, in Canada, when her children were in their school years, the Lunn family went to live in an old farmhouse at the edge of a bay on the north shore of Lake Ontario I loved that house, too, she says, and I began writing stories about it and the people who might once have lived in it The stories I made up about the Vermont house have long since vanished but the ones I wrote about the Ontario house families are The Root Cellar, Shadow in Hawthorn Bay and The Hollow Tree Janet lives in Ottawa now in a small city house but, chances are, her stories will still reflect her love of the countryside and those old farmhouses.

    In this lushly illustrated, emotionally wrenching and true tale of the American Revolution, Janet Lunn tells the story of young Charlotte Haines, who has to face one of the cruel realities of war, family division, and how different, conflicting ideals and philosophies can not only tear families apart, but can turn naturally stubborn, unbending individuals into vile and loathsome tyrants. Charlotte is ten years old and lives in New York City. It is the year 1783 and she faces a major, emotionally [...]

    Wow! This true story packed quite an emotional punch.I had a problem with how slavery was glossed over, until I got to the point where Charlotte’s father did what he did regarding her, then I realized that this was simply a different portrait of a whole other era and was told from its point of view.I have this on my non-fiction, history, biography and also my fiction & historical fiction shelves. While it’s the true story of ten-year-old Charlotte with a note at the end telling what happ [...]

    I read this book years ago and was so moved by it. We are studying the American Revolution and I wanted to give my girls a picture of the ordinary people that lived and fought and loved during that time. This book certainly does that, plus shows how one can make the best of a terrible situation.

    Meh. This would have been better as a longer story. The illustrations were lovely and it talked about a topic little explored in American history, but I just could not believe that Charlotte's father would disown her, a ten-year-old girl, merely for visiting her cousins before they left for evermore. If there had been more pages to explain his character I might have bought it.

    So I didn't realize that some Loyalists were exiled after the Revolutionary War. In Charlotte, a young girl's uncle and his family are being forced to up and relocate to Nova Scotia. When Charlotte defies her father and says goodbye to her cousins, he calls her a traitor and "exiles" her from the family home. Without any other options, she travels with her uncle and aunt to the British colony.Interesting stuff, but I really wish the author had spent more time on Charlotte's new life in Nova Scot [...]

    It was a good chance to see the perspective of a girl during this time period.
