During their sixteenth summer, Alex and Victoria Ashton discover the true path of their destiny and courageously follow it. Travel back in history in Looking for Papa, by author Patricia Johnston. By visiting the past of this great nation, Alex and Victoria see how the future reflects the events of the past. Watch anxiously as the Salem Witch Trials take place, behold the Statue of Liberty, the great beacon of freedom and promise, at Ellis Island, and meet several significant Americans, such as Harriet Tubman and Cotton Mather, who were instrumental in changing the existence of discrimination in America's history. As Victoria and Alex learn that as personal values become public standards, an individual must strive to develop a strong faith and a sense of morality to further a peaceful environment. As Alex and Victoria diligently search for answers to history's questions, they find more than they are looking for in Looking for Papa.
