Sarah Bishop

by Scott O'Dell


Quick Overview

Left alone after the deaths of her father and brother who take opposite sides in the War for Independence, and fleeing from the British who seek to arrest her, Sarah Bishop struggles to shape a new life for herself in the wilderness.


Sarah Bishop is a 15 year old girl, living with her Father, and her older brother Chad. They had moved to Long Island, New York Colony, from England, and her Mother had died. Her Father keeps a picture of King George on the wall and this upsets many of the patriots around the area, because that shows that they are loyalists. Her brother, Chad, with his friend David join the Patriot army, against his Father's wishes. One night, some patriots come and burn down the Bishop farm. Her Father is tarred and feathered, and later dies. She is very angry, but sets out for New York City to find her brother Chad. After the battle at Brooklyn Heights, she prays he had not been killed by the cruel Hessians, but had been taken prisoner instead. She gets a job at a tavern for awhile, until she has enough money to make the journey. In New York she discovers that her brother has died in the prison camp and she is very upset. Then she is blamed for starting a fire in New York City, a crime she did not commit. She flees into the wilderness of Westchester county, and hides from the British there. She lives in a cave and does her daily tasks (which are put in such away you just have to read on) and she is even accused of being a witch by the people in the local town.
