Synopsis

Messenger on the Battlefield by Melinda Rice

Isabelina Montoya is happy in 1835 when her older sister, Feliciana, accepts the marriage proposal of a handsome Mexican soldier. At 11, Isabelina is old enough to help plan the wedding! But then Texas goes to war against Mexico, and Isabelinais family is divided. Should they remain true to their Mexican heritage or fight for their new homeland? The Lone Star Heroines series brings to life real events in Texas history and shows young readers how girls living during those exciting times experienced and even contributed to those dramatic events. Each book in the series includes a chapter of background stories and pictures of the actual people who lived them. Look for other stories of The Lone Star Heroines Series, and the Lone Star Heroes series for boys, too.
