    Fourteen-year-old Rachel Marsh is nanny to John and Abigail Adams' children and witnesses firsthand how tension builds in the feisty New England town in the two years before it erupts in the Boston Massacre. Friends become foes and families divide as British troops arrive in 1768 to force the outspoken Bostonians to toe the line and obey the British government.

    Overall

    I enjoy reading period work and liked reading about the time in a fiction format. It wasn't a great piece but it passed the time. I found the language and the reader's pace to be a bit "stilted," which caused me to be removed from the story at times. In all, I would rate the book as an "okay" adventure of a young woman's journey from child to young adult and her intellectual revelations as a story I can identify with, however it was not much of an challenge. Somewhat worthwhile, in my opinion.
