This was a historical novel set in the time of the Boston Massacre which prior to this I didn't know much about. I also don't know much about American history so I got to learn a bit about John Adams and James Otis. Our heroine, Jane Clarke, witnesses the Boston Massacre as she resides in town with her Aunt Gill who she is taking care of. There were times when I thought that the writing was great but overall it was kind of a slow read for me. I identified a bit with Jane and her views on life, love, family and marriage but after it was over I'm not sure what I got out of this book.

“There are some wives who require but a sentence. There are some who require a book. You, Miss Clarke, would require volumes.”
