This is one of the smartest, well-written books that I've read set in Colonial America. The author knows her setting, the time, and the history, and crafts a knockout of a story. And she doesn't let it dwindle into a sloppy romance or oversentimentalize anything. Very much recommended.
Did anyone else here wanted to see Nate Clarke have a close and intimate encounter between his head and an oar?
