The Tin Heart - Ackerman, Karen

To keep their friendship alive during the Civil War, Flora and Mahaley each hold one half of a tin heart once worn as a necklace. Michael Hays's full-color paintings embellish the pages of Karen Ackerman's story in a book rich with historical detail, yet timely with contemporary concerns.
