In Cape Cod, Jane Clarke leads a simple yet rich life. But at twenty-two, Jane knows that soon she will be expected to move out of her father's home and start a household of her own. When a bitter feud between her father and a fellow miller erupts into a shocking act of violence, Jane's trust is shaken. And when Jane rejects a marriage with the young man Jane's father has chosen for her, she is sent to Boston to care for a spinster aunt. It is the eve of the Revolutionary War when Jane arrives in this bustling city awash with red coats and rebellious fervor. There, she is caught between tradition and independence, family and conscience, loyalty and love. Grippingly rendered, The Rebellion of Jane Clarke is a compelling story of one woman's struggle to find her own place and leave her own mark on a new country as it is born.

Good atmosphere of unease in the city and its denizens and great portrayal of a woman with a brain living in this time period -- of what life was like for women who tried to control their own circumstances. The famous Boston figures (esp. John Adams) were fun to rub elbows with and I admired the author’s ability to portray flawed characters who were neither all good nor all bad.

Expected by her domineering father to marry a man not of her choosing, Jane decides her banishment to Boston is not the worst thing to happen to her. Soon she is enmeshed in pre-revolutionary dissent and finds out what real life is about.
