I read this because I was a fan of Rinaldi's book Acquaintance with Darkness. I didn't think I would enjoy a historical fiction book, but I really liked reading it!

It started off kinda boring, but as the first couple of chapters went on, it became a great book with a well-written plot.

I noticed that not all of the historical information in here was correct. But most of the time, it was. (Rinaldi wrote "Townsend Acts" instead of "Townshend Acts") The parts about the Boston Massacre were very accurate with what actually happened.

I disliked the ending. I wanted it to continue on because Rinaldi had so many untied ends. Maybe she wanted the readers to guess for ourselves. But the only thing was that the story ended with such a broad range of things unexplained, that anything could have happened.

I gave this book 4 stars mostly because of the ending which seemed unfinished. The writing style of this book was immaculate.

Marie I read Just Jane  A Daughter of England Caught in the Struggle of the American Revolution (Great Episodes) by William Lavender, a Great Episodes book, too for my outside reading assignment. Here's the link to my review:

Either way, that book was the best, I elaborate in my review. I loved it sooo much. Glad you liked it too!
