Overview In 1840s Ohio, twelve-year-old Meg Buehler struggles to follow her dream of becoming an artist despite the discouragement of her brother Fred, whose concern is the issue of slavery.
Time Period: 1844 Slavery is a growing issue in the United States of the 1840s. . .but Meg Buehler can only think about drawing. This fictional twelve year old, an aspiring artist, is frustrated when her family, much more concerned with practical living and politics, can't understand her desire to create. Especially for girls ages eight to twelve, this poignant story shares the struggles and triumphs of a girl distant in time but close in spirit-while simultaneously teaching vital lessons of Christian faith and American history. "Meg Follows a Dream" is great for a girl's personal library, or an excellent resource for homeschooling.

Reviews - What do customers think about Meg Follows a Dream: The Fight for Freedom (Sisters in Time)?
Got for a friend's 8 year old daughter Jun 26, 2008
I got this for a friend's 8 year old daughter, and wanted to read it first to see how appropriate it was for that age group. I think I may wait to give it to her until she is at least 9 or 10. Meg, in the story, is very interested in art and being an artist. The reason I would wait longer for the age group is because Meg is enamored with a boy from the first chapter. Absolutely nothing improper happens in the story between them, but still, she thinks about her art and him through the whole story.
Very Wonderful Mar 8, 2006
This book, I must say, is one of the best books my daughter has ever come across. I have also read it and found it very delightful. This book helps grow your faith in Christ and learn a bit of history of the time. Each story has a main charater that has a deleima and will over come it by the conclusion. My daughter is very fond of historical fiction, and as she always says about this series - Their a must!
