Facing The Enemy contains the stories from Kathleen's previously published Caroline Takes A Chance, Caroline's Battle, and Changes For Caroline American Girl books.

These stories are written for readers age 8 and up who enjoy historical fiction without sex, gore, or explicit violence.

Story Description


Everyone has been anxiously waiting for the supply boat, but just as it's finally coming into view, Caroline realizes the ship is at risk. What can she do make sure the supplies arrive safely?

Caroline's Papa barely returns home before frightening news arrives—British warships are headed for Sackets Harbor, ready to attack. Every able-bodied man, including Papa, must go and fight.

Then, while helping on her uncle's farm, Caroline bravely keeps watch for a thief who has been stealing vegetables, and discovers that someone else needs her help. But when will she get to go home to Sackets Harbor?

These stories are available as a 224-page softcover book (as a standalone or in the Caroline 3-Book Box Set) as well as in digital versions for popular e-book apps and readers.

Author's Note

The War of 1812 presents more challenges for Caroline Abbott!

In this new compilation, Caroline does her best to help her family and friends while facing the enemy on the lake and on land.

While the situations may seem very different from your life, I hope Caroline’s emotions will ring true—and even feel familiar. Happy reading!
