Summary

The year is 1729, and Resolute Talbot and her siblings are captured by pirates, taken from their family in Jamaica and brought to the New World. Resolute and her sister are sold into slavery in colonial New England and taught the trade of spinning and weaving. When Resolute finds herself alone in Lexington, Massachusetts, she struggles to find her way in a society that is quick to judge a young woman without a family. 

As the seeds of rebellion against England grow, Resolute is torn between following the rules and breaking free. Resolute's talent at the loom places her at the center of an incredible web of secrecy that helped drive the American Revolution.

Contains mature themes.

beautifully done.

I enjoyed it thoroughly. The characters were very rich and colorful. The details make the story come alive and I felt a part of the story. I love audio books but felt maybe my concentration was waning as I was not able to get into the books I ordered. I was considering leaving Audiobooks. This book was gripping and more than kept my interest.

I couldn’t put this book down!

This is one of the best books I have ever read. I love books written during this time as well as a strong woman as the major character.

Classic

Another great book from Nancy E Turner. I have been waiting years for this to come out on audiobook. When I read the paper book, when it was released, I couldn’t put it down and I found myself swept up again into this story and couldn’t quit listening. Well done!

Bravo!

This story was beautifully written and narrated and I am so sad it is finished. As I listened, it was easy to see the rich tapestry of history unfold and I felt so connected to all of the characters and especially Resolute. A truly remarkable telling of our history and the brave, forgotten individuals who brought us to freedom.

Wonderful story

I took a chance on this book as I have never heard of this author. So glad I did. The author has a wonderful straight-forward no nonsense way of writing. She does not get bogged down in pettyfogging minutiae. The story flows in a pleasant way and keeps ones attention throughout the book.if you like the Outlander series you may like this book.
I highly recommend you give it a try. I’m going to read Turner’s other books!
