The Rebellion of Jane Clarke : On the eve of the Revolutionary War, a young woman is caught between tradition and independence, family and conscience, loyalty and love in this spellbinding novel. Jane Clarke leads a simple yet rich life in the small village of Satucket on Cape Cod. She knows things will change. Yet some things - including the bitter feud between her father and a fellow miller named Winslow - appear likely to remain the same. When Jane defies her father and refuses to accept a marriage proposal, she is sent away to Boston to make her living as she can. Arriving in this strange, bustling city awash with red coats and rebellious fervor, Jane plunges into new conflicts and carries with her old ones she'd hoped to leave behind. Father against daughter, Clarke against Winslow, loyalist against rebel, command against free will - the battles are complicated. But when Jane witnesses British soldiers killing five colonists on a cold March evening in 1770, an event now dubbed "the Boston Massacre," she must question seeming truths and face one of the most difficult choices of her life, alone except for the two people who continue to stand by her -- her grandparents Lyddie and Eben Freeman. Grippingly rendered, filled with some of the lesser known but most influential figures of America's struggle for independence, The Rebellion of Jane Clarke is a compelling story of one woman's struggle to find her own place and leave her own mark on a new country as it is born.
