After his impeachment, the president of the United States refuses to leave office, and the country erupts into civil war. Orphaned by the fighting and looking for a home, ten-year-old Hannah Miller joins a citizen militia in a besieged Indianapolis.
In the Free Women militia, Hannah finds a makeshift family. They’ll teach her how to survive. They’ll give her hope.
And they’ll show her how to use a gun.
