    Well as texts in and of themselves Susanna Merritt’s fictional journal entries sometimes do tend to become a bit whining self centred and also even with the delightfully realistic sense of historical time and place encountered in Whispers of War The War of 1812 Diary of Susanna Merritt presenting a slight tendency towards repetitiveness and occasional over exaggeration and yes also quite often clearly showing that she that young Susanna has obviously also been a bit spoiled by especially her father and older brother and is thus rather too much used to often getting her own way However and that having been said I also and equally do and very much so appreciate the sense of historical balance shown by author Kit Pearson and that she through Susanna’s first person voice does not make Whispers of War The War of 1812 Diary of Susanna Merritt into simply an us versus them story that Susanna’s fictional diaries show not only her worries about the possibilities of a looming war but that there is also both understanding and sympathy shown towards individuals such as Mr Seabrook American born farmers merchants etc who might now reside in theoretically “British” areas but do NOT want to be forced to fight against the USA and yes that many residents of Upper Canada obviously still have family members in the USA and of course vice versa leaving readers with a bit of confusion regarding the War of 1812 and which in my opinion is actually necessary and justified as the conflict was never really all that one sided and showing distinct heroes versus villains but much nuanced and with even today unanswered questionsCombined with the fact that Canadian War of 1812 legend General Isaac Brock is thankfully described within Susanna’s journals as not only bravely heroic but also as someone rather frustratingly foolish and rash and as such also at least partially responsible for both his demise and for many of the CanadianBritish casualties of the Battle of Queenston Heights and that the victory over the Americans could likely have been achieved without so many casualties if Brock had not made his rather thoughtless even if brave charge I have found Whispers of War The War of 1812 Diary of Susanna Merritt a solid instalment in the Dear Canada not one of my total personal favourites to be sure but a readable enjoyable and also enlightening piece of Canadian themed historical fiction
