Description

Southern Illinois is a place of mixed emotions as the American Civil War erupts. For the Creightons, the war lures two sons to the Union army and one to the Confederacy, leaving 10-year-old Jethro to care for the family farm. As the war rages, Jethro does whatever he can to learn about the fates of his brothers, while the Creighton family faces its own danger. Some townspeople can't forgive the Creightons for having a rebel son-and they're willing to use violence to make their feelings known. In a state torn by conflicting loyalties, Jethro is forced to grow up quickly to preserve his family and their home. Across Five Aprils is a powerful classic from Newbery Medal-winning author Irene Hunt. Tom Stechschulte's homespun narration brings out the spirit and courage of a boy who shoulders a tremendous load--and becomes a young man in the process.

Professional reviews

"Well-written and researched, Hunt's Newbery Honor Book, which tells the story of the Creighton family's troubles during the Civil War, has been popular for close to four decades. Hailing from southern Illinois, the family sees members go off to fight on both sides, then loses one of its own at Shiloh. Tom Stechschulte's voice is energetic and lively, ably affecting a country accent for all characters, the men being more convincing than the women. However, all are done cleanly and without caricature. His deep voice is a natural for a narrative that takes us on a journey of some four years. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
