Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Home on Stoney Creek

Eleven-year-old Sarah Moore was devastated when her father decided the family would move to the Kentucky frontier at the start of the American Revolution. She doesn't want to leave Virginia, where her friends and the only home she has ever known are, and she worries about her oldest brother, who has left home to join the Patriot army. She prays and prays to stay in Virginia but her family moves anyway. The journey through the wilderness to Kentucky is dangerous as the family struggles through forests, across rivers, and over mountains. Reaching Kentucky, the Moores must struggle to build a home in the untamed wilderness, as they build a cabin, raise crops, and struggle with natural elements and fear of Indian attacks. Sarah is desperately lonely and longs for her home in Virginia, vowing to return as soon as she can. But as time goes by she begins to realize that home is not a place, but being with her family.
