Freedom. In 1776 New England, that word is on everyone's lips. But for 13-year-old Isabel the word holds a different meaning, especially after the only mistress she has ever known dies, and instead of receiving the freedom promised, she and her sister are sold to the Locktons, a wealthy New York family. In a matter of hours Isabel has to leave Rhode Island for the hustle and bustle of colonial New York City - a community divided and caught up in the American colonies struggle for independence.

I had to read this as a book for summer reading. To be honest i was dreading the task. However, i was happily surprised that the book turned out to be worlds better than i thought it was going to be. I would recommend to all who enjoy historical fiction novels.
