Hannah Green lives a nice life in
Holly Springs, Miss. Her father and
two oldest brothers are fighting in
the Civil War. Still, Hannah has
great friends and is a happy go-
lucky girl.
One day, Hannah's sister Joanna
falls in love with a Union soldier.
He warns them about what will
happen when the infamous Order
No. 11, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's law
forcing Jews to evacuate their homes
supposedly for violating trade laws,
is implemented.
Hannah and her family leave their
home. This is the beginning of a
challenging journey — including
the loss of their slaves (when
President Abraham Lincoln abolish-
es slavery), illness and concern for
the fate of the rest of the family. Are
Hannah's father and brothers still
alive?
Will they ever return? And will

the family ever be able to make it
back to their beloved home in
Mississippi?
Written for young readers (about
ages 10-14) The War Within is inter-
esting enough because it teaches chil-
dren about a bit of unknown history,
and because it shows the way that
Hannah learns to reconsider slavery.
She grew up with slavery, it seemed
normal enough, but over time she
comes to question what right a human
being has to "own" another.
Don't look for too much positive
Jewish content here, though.
At one point, Hannah even says,
"I was just glad that Ma and Pa did
not strictly observe the Sabbath or
we might not be allowed to go to a
dance on Friday night." (Pretty
strange comment for a book that
supposedly is about teaching the
value of tolerance.)
Also, be prepared for a bit of a
lecture at the beginning in the form
of the author's note. "What became
the central question for me as I
wrote this book was: How do we
escape from the prisons that are our
minds? We are brought up a certain
way, with certain values ... As we
grow up we are often encouraged to
`think for ourselves.' But how do we
do that if we are so used to thinking
in a certain way that we do not even
realize we are doing it?" (and on and
on and on).
