Publisher's Summary

On a dark night in 1775, Lizzie Boylston is awakened by the sound of cannons. From a hill south of Boston, she watches as fires burn in Charlestown, in a battle that she soon discovers has claimed her husband's life.
Alone in a new town, Lizzie grieves privately but takes comfort in her deepening friendship with Abigail Adams. Soon, word spreads of Lizzie's extraordinary midwifery and healing skills, and she begins to channel her grief into caring for those who need her. But when two traveling patriots are poisoned, Lizzie finds herself with far more complicated matters on her hands - she suspects a political plot intended to harm Abigail and her family. Determined to uncover the truth, Lizzie becomes entangled in a conspiracy that could not only destroy her livelihood - and her chance at finding love again - but also lead to the downfall of a new nation.

Enjoyable

I enjoyed this book - the descriptions of the time are great and the performance is fab. You do really get to know the characters and the author's note at the end separating fact from fiction was great. A couple of times I felt there were some literary techniques used for the sake of them, and a few times the author seemed to give the game away by revealing something incidentally and then going back to explain it, which I found could then make things feel a bit predictable even when they weren't. But overall it was good and I'd recommend it :)
