Becoming Valley Forge

By Sheilah Vance (The Elevator Group, 476 pages)

This exacting work of historical fiction from Paoli’s Sheilah Vance explores the lives of ordinary men and women—a former slave, a farmer, Army volunteers—as revolution engulfs the region. The perfect beach read for a patriotic month.
