Publisher's Summary

Fresh from Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies' Academy, 16-year-old Jane Peck has come to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to be wedded to her true love, William Baldt, her idol from childhood. But her socially correct upbringing in straitlaced Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Shoal Water Bay in the Washington Territory.
Thrown upon her wits in the wild, Jane learns not only to cope, but to thrive - and to discover for herself whether she is truly proper Miss Jane Peck of Philadelphia, faultless young lady and fiancee, or Boston Jane, as the Chinook dub her, fearless and loyal woman of the frontier.
Drawn from historical material of the region, Boston Jane is a rich potpourri of adventure, humor, romance, and suspense, featuring a dashing new heroine who will win listeners' hearts as she discovers true desires of her own.

Critic Reviews

"The intricate details of mid-19th century life on an untamed frontier - complete with carefully researched Chinook tribal history and real-life incidents of white settlers--are absolutely fascinating. A thrilling, entertaining read." (Amazon.com review)

Boston Jane: An Adventure

I have read this book and enjoyed it immensely, but listening to it on audible makes it really come alive. I would recommend this as a must read.

Voices For Boston Jane

If you could sum up Boston Jane in three words, what would they be?

Adventurous, Exciting, Historical

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jehu because he is very sarcastic and funny.

What three words best describe Jessalyn Gilsig’s performance?

Distinct, Funny, Great

Any additional comments?

Jessalyn did a pretty good job reading but I think she could have made Jehu's voice a little more distinct. It was hard to tell the difference of voices between Jane and Jehu.
