by Sally Gunning
I thoroughly enjoyed this historical novel by the same author of The Widow's War.
There were a couple of times I shook my head in disbelief, but when I thought about the time period and the youth of the main character, I decided those points were believable.
The book begins in the mid-1750's when 5-yr-old Alice leaves behind a life of poverty in England when her father moves the family to America. Instead of getting better the situation worsens and when they arrive in Boston Alice's father sells her into servitude. The story follows Alice until she is 19 or 20.
I look forward to reading more by this author. I think Sally Gunning is a name we will hear a lot over the next several years.
