This was an unexpectedly delightful book in many ways. Full of history. Did you know that Paul Revere was a silver smith? I kept expecting Benjamin Franklin to show up, but he never did. I know he was in France before the war. That must be when this story takes place. Those who enjoy this story might also like "FEVER 1773" by Laurie Halsey Andersen. (The date may be wrong.) She is also the author of "SPEAK," which I know is on Audio tape.
