September, 1917. The nation has entered the Great War, the War to End All Wars. While young Americans by the hundreds of thousands march into battle in Europe, back home the nation's social fabric is torn asunder by patriotic fervor and xenophobia. When two German-American classmates are taunted in the schoolyard, 14-year-old Claire Bernard rushes to their defense. Her noble intentions soon plunge her into a dark world of international conspiracy where prejudice and suspicion blur distinctions between friend and foe, good and evil, where she could well become the next victim. Noah's Raven, a story from a century past that speaks to us across the generations.

Praise For Noah's Raven

"This book combines a mystery (espionage) with romance among young residents of Holyoke, Massachusetts during World War I. I see it as an excellent read for middle and high-school students in the Connecticut Valley because McMaster has integrated a great deal of local color and historical background information into his narrative."
- Gerald McFarland, author of The Scattered People and The Buenaventura Series

"What a great book! So many book series get less interesting with each edition but McMaster has been able to keep this a "page-turner" with aspects of biology, history, human psychology, cultural and historical features of the time. I loved it.”
- Maureen Doyle, Southbridge, Massachusetts
