I don’t suppose you live in Texas?  Worldcat says there’s a copy at a library in Waco…

Actually, what I would recommend doing (provided you don’t miraculously live near Waco) is calling your library and asking them to borrow a copy for you via ILL; I bet they will at least try!

Oh, wait–that might not be the right book, either, sorry!  I guess the Revolution wasn’t 1944-1946 (I am an idiot).  Any other guesses at a title or author?

@woodwindwaker: I went to Worldcat and first tried “letters to nathan” since that’s what we thought the title was…that gave me the first result, which was obviously not the right one.

Then I used Keyword search (still in worldcat.org) and used nathan hale joanna since it was a book about nathan hale, involving his sister.  Ta-da!  First result was “A Namesake for Nathan” and the description sounded promising.

It was all about starting in the right place, I think.
