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.
