Boston Jane: An Adventure | [Jennifer L. Holm]

Boston Jane: An Adventure

Fresh from Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies' Academy, 16-year-old Jane Peck has come to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to be wedded to her true love, William Baldt, her idol from childhood. But her socially correct upbringing in straitlaced Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Shoal Water Bay in the Washington Territory.

Publisher's Summary

Fresh from Miss Hepplewhite's Young Ladies' Academy, 16-year-old Jane Peck has come to the unknown wilds of the Northwest to be wedded to her true love, William Baldt, her idol from childhood. But her socially correct upbringing in straitlaced Philadelphia is hardly preparation for the colorful characters and crude life that await her in Shoal Water Bay in the Washington Territory.

Thrown upon her wits in the wild, Jane learns not only to cope, but to thrive - and to discover for herself whether she is truly proper Miss Jane Peck of Philadelphia, faultless young lady and fiancee, or Boston Jane, as the Chinook dub her, fearless and loyal woman of the frontier.

Drawn from historical material of the region, Boston Jane is a rich potpourri of adventure, humor, romance, and suspense, featuring a dashing new heroine who will win listeners' hearts as she discovers true desires of her own.

What the Critics Say

"The intricate details of mid-19th century life on an untamed frontier - complete with carefully researched Chinook tribal history and real-life incidents of white settlers--are absolutely fascinating. A thrilling, entertaining read." (Amazon.com review)

    "Wonderful story!"

    This is a fantastic story for young girls as it explores the differences between being who you think people want you to be and being who you want to be and finding the balance between both. Jane Peck follows her betrothed to Shoalwater Bay, Oregon in the late 1800s. There she learns that being a proper young lady isn't the most important thing and how things look is not the same as how things are. Empowering and exciting story. Jessalyn Gilsig does a lovely job with the narration. I only wish the 2 sequels were available as well.
