Book Review My Name is Resolute

Just popping in to share a good book.
Actually, an amazing book! 
One that I was so sad to end. 

Taken from Goodreads
"The year is 1729, and Resolute Talbot and her siblings are captured by pirates, taken from their family in Jamaica and brought to the New World. Resolute and her sister are sold into slavery in colonial New England and taught the trade of spinning and weaving. When Resolute finds herself alone in Lexington, Massachusetts, she struggles to find her way in a society that is quick to judge a young woman without a family. As the seeds of rebellion against England grow, Resolute is torn between following the rules and breaking free. Resolute's talent at the loom places her at the center of in incredible web of secrecy that helped drive the American Revolution."

Let me know if you have read this or if you will. 
I would love to hear your thoughts.

I was so excited to see that you had read this book. Have you read These is My Words? You would love it, too! My husband and I both read really feel like you enter the time and place, don't you? It's so real that you feel all the emotions. I haven't checked lately to see if there are any other books by this author but she is amazing! Hugs, Diane

Hi - I rarely comment on blogs, but this one caught my eye. I love Nancy Turner's writing. I read her These Is My Words series and was hooked. I also have this book on my shelf, but haven't yet read it. Thanks for the review. :)
