"You preach love while all the time you think you are better than all people." "Standing in the Light The Captive Diary of Catherine Carey Logan," by Mary Pope Osborne tells the sad diary of a young girl and her brother's experience as a captive of a Native American Tribe. Catherine begins to date her diary entries up until January 7, 1764 when she and her brother Tomas were captured while on their way to school. The children were captured as revenge on the white people after they massacre in Lancaster. Catherine's diary entries remained undated until she was captured back by the White Man on October 20, 1764. By then when she is reunited with her family, the damage had been done. She is unsure where she belongs for her heart lies with both her family or her family that captured her. ( )
