Ann Rinaldi was one of my favourite authors as a young teen, and I found this one while going through some old books at my parents' house. I remember liking it at the time, but now I am just astonished at the premise of the novel -- a handsome young British man tutoring a teenage girl and eventually marrying her. As someone who works in education this is not exactly something that I would like to condone or recommend to teens or teachers! I still enjoyed rereading the novel, but growing up has spoiled the plot a little for me. ( )

Time Enough for Drums is a classic novel of the American Revolution. In it we watch Jemima Emerson grow from a childish fifteen-year-old to a mature woman as she attempts to hold on to whatever parts of her life she can in the face of the chaos of war. Trenton, New Jersey, in December 1775, is a place standing on the brink of change and Jem's family is no exception. Her elder brother is forming a regiment for the Continental Army and her younger brother wants nothing more than to join the fight as well. All Jem really wants to to somehow escape her tutor, the Tory John Reid, and do her part for what she sees as her country. Whether that's helping her friend Nathaniel Moore or rebellion against the demand's of John Reid, it all seems a bit like a game. Until an accidental discovery dramatically raises the stakes and war comes to Trenton. With everything changing, is it any surprise that Jem changes too?

Probably Rinaldi's best work, it's what we would now call YA, but covers Jem's early adulthood as well as her teen years. Full of adventure, family, romance, and a lot of growing up, it manages to show the hardships of war and the power of human resilience without ever losing heart. Highly recommended for those who enjoy historical fiction, well written teen-centered novels, and novels set on the homefront. ( )

I originally read Time Enough for Drums fifteen years a go. I was going through an American Revolution phase, discovered this book at the library and fell in love. I must have read it five or six times in the span of three years. Then, I got busy with other books and genres and this book went to the back of my mind. However, every once in a while, I'd think about it again, but no longer could remember the title or author. Finally, I took to Google and Goodreads and lucked out in rediscovering this book.

Time Enough for Drums takes place at the beginning of the American Revolution. Jem, our young narrator, is a staunch Patriot and a free spirit. (At times, she reminds me of Anne Shirley). Her brother, Dan, joins the Continental Army while her parents and herself support them from their home city. She has a tutor, John Reid, a known Tory whom she despises because of his strict nature and allegiance to the King of England. As time progresses, she discovers some shocking truths about John he is really an American spy! that changes the way she sees him and her feelings towards him. Although their relationship is certainly a major part of the plot, it is by no means the crux of this story. That belongs to the trials and tribulations Jem and her family face as a result of the Revolution.

Nostalgia may play a part in it, but I found this most current time reading it as wonderful as all the previous ones. ( )

I read this book every year at least one, if has always been a favorite of mine. I first found it in my middle school teachers library and ...."forgot" to give it back. I cannot wait to read this book to my kids one day! ( )

As YA books go, this is pretty good. The Emerson family of Trenton NJ are supporters of the patriots and are seeking liberty from King George III and England. Throughout the war there is death, grief, lack of resources, and enormous growth by Jemima, the young daughter. This is a great book for YAs to learn of the basics of the Revolutionary War. ( )
