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.

Seemed true to the thoughts of the revolutionary war

The story held my attention well, although a little slow at times, it reflects what I would imagine the pace of life at those times. The inner strength of the main characters and the close human bonds that they developed were inspiring and an indication of how the harsh living conditions were tolerated.

I will admit that the very beginning of this did not engage me. But the synopsis had interested me so I stayed with it and it was not long at all before I became in love with the. Narrator's voice her delivery.. the story, the author's style, the characters, the vocabulary, the descriptive way the author painted pictures for me. I imagine I would have enjoyed it in written form as well but if I'm going to reread this it will be the audio version once more . Bravo !
